Lesson 1: The strange country

Readings: Daniel 1: 1-21

Daniel and his three friends, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah, were prisoners in Babylon. King Nebuchadnezzar was good to them and chose them to be trained in a special school. There, they had to learn a new language. They were given new names. They were also expected to eat the king’s special food.

Lesson 2: The fiery furnace

Readings: Daniel 2: 48, 49; 3: 1-30

One day Nebuchadnezzar made a very big statue, or idol, of gold. He ordered all his important rulers including Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego to come to a special service. (These were the new names given to Daniel’s three friends.)

Lesson 3: The open windows

Readings: Daniel 6: 1-16

Daniel had worked so well for the new king Darius, that the king decided to put him in charge of everything. Some of the other governors did not like this and tried to find something wrong with Daniel’s work. But they could not find one mistake because Daniel was so honest and careful in everything he did!

Lesson 4: The den of lions

Readings: Daniel 6: 17-28

Before Daniel was put into the lions’ den the king had said to him, “Your God who you serve continually, He will save you.” The king then returned to the palace. He didn’t eat anything, or find it easy to sleep that night.
