10 Developing the Lesson
mins Paraphrase the Bible story from Daniel 2
One night, King Nebuchadnezzar had a disturbing dream. It's so bad, that he was not able
to get any sleep thereafter. He called magicians and asked them for help, but they do not
know the meaning of his dream. He got mad at all the magicians and ordered his soldier to
kill all the magicians including all his wise men.
Daniel and his friends are also will die because they part of the wise men. He then
asked the King to give him more time and finally he allowed Daniel to have more time
before interpreting the meaning of his dream. Daniel goes and tells Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego to ask God for help, and their prayers are effective. During the night, Daniel has a
vision which reveals the dream and its interpretation.
Daniel is brought in before Nebuchadnezzar. When Nebuchadnezzar asks Daniel if he's
able to help, Daniel gives all the credit to God.
Finally, Daniel told the actual description of the dream and its interpretation: King
Nebuchadnezzar saw a giant, frightening statue of a human beingone with a head of gold,
a chest and arms of silver, a stomach and thighs of bronze, lower legs made of iron, and feet
made of mixed iron and clay. Suddenly, he sees a stoneone not made by human handshit
the statue on its weak part-clay, part-iron feet. The statue collapses into pieces and gets
blown away by the wind. But the stone turns into a giant mountain that covers the entire
earth.

Daniel went on to interpret the dream: King Nebuchadnezzar is the head of gold, the
silver part of the statue is an inferior kingdom that will replace him, and the bronze part is a

third kingdom that will "rule over the whole earth." The iron kingdom will be one that
"crushes and smashes everything." The kingdom will get divided, symbolized by the clay and
iron feet. It will be partly strong and partly fragile.
The stone thrown at the statue symbolizes the kingdom of God, that will permanently
replace them, standing for all time. Nebuchadnezzar is really impressed by this interpretation,
bows down and worships Daniel and orders grain and incense offered to him. He also praises
