Daniel: The Interpreter of Dreams
This is a biographical character study of the Old Testament prophet Daniel. It is chronological in nature and pulls out various events and people in his life that helped shape his character. As we discuss these events in Daniel’s life, we will see the value of spiritual discipline, faith in God, and pure lifestyle. These five sessions are each very different and equally important.
Note to Leader: Advertising this Bible study is very important. Below are some short descriptions for you to use in a church bulletin, newsletter, email, phone calls, text messages, Facebook events, and more!
If you use PowerPoint, there are suggestions for slides found in the lessons. Each lesson has reproducible handouts for you to use. The main lesson is for you—it is written to you. This curriculum is written to be discussion driven and application oriented. We have provided tips for you along the way to help you and the group feel comfortable discussing the various topics.
