"Safe and Sound 01: Security and the Reality of the Exile"
by Tim Suttle
Israel is a huge concern in our post-9/11 world. Where does it come from? What happens when we have it, or when we don't? In this series we are working thru the book of Daniel. This week is chapter 01, and the beginning of the period of Exile.
Daniel’s Training in Babylon
1 In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzarking of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it. 2 And the Lord delivered Jehoiakim king of Judah into his hand, along with some of the articles from the temple of God. These he carried off to the temple of his god in Babylonia[a] and put in the treasure house of his god.
