Daniel turns out to be quite the dream interpreter. He is able to interpret the King’s strange statue dream. A little history work and we can uncover the nations of the statue. The gold is the Babylonian Empire (that’s the easy one), the silver chest and arms are the Medo-Persian Empire, the bronze belly and thighs are the Greek Empire, the iron legs are the Roman Empire and the iron/clay feet is the revived Roman Empire at the second coming of Christ.
