Speaker: Philip Woods | Series: Daniel
Passage: Daniel 5

Dig Questions

  1. In Daniel 2, 4, and 5 we see that Daniel, empowered by God’s Spirit, is able to give answers to situations when the smartest men in Babylon could not. What does this tell us about wisdom? Where do you seek wisdom?

  2. In Daniel 5:22, we see that King Belshazzar knows the character of God, yet does not trust in Him. In what ways do you know God’s character, yet fail to trust in Him?
