Chapter 4 of the Book of Daniel records the amazing faith confessions of Nebuchadnezzar. According to a class discussion, when his statements are taken in the historical context of the day, what was so striking about these faith confessions?
A. Nebuchadnezzar was apparently replacing his belief in certain attributes of Marduk, a primary Babylonian god, and attributing them instead to Yahweh, Daniel's God.

Antiochus Epiphanes (Antioch IV Epiphanes)
Another prediction of an "Anti-Messiah" or "Anti-Christ" figure is in chapter 9 of Daniel. According to in-class teaching, which historical figure seems to be a match for this evil person who oppressed God's people with violence and destruction? NOTE: There are different perspectives on the "who," yet both history and other Scriptures, including many in the NT, present a strong case for the figure mentioned in class.
