(34) Daniel - The beast empires prophesied to come after Nebuchadnezzar, and where they ruled
While the other prophets of the Bible and the history which they had foretold are all proven to be true in their own ways, nowhere among the Old Testament prophets is history foretold in such a clearly identifiable manner as in Daniel. For that reason, Biblical critics always try to push Daniel forward to a date much later than the time in which the book itself professes that it was written. But internal evidence in the book helps serve to prove that Daniel wrote it when the book claims it was written, in the 6th century BC, because Daniel has been justified by archaeology.
For example, in Daniel chapter 4 we read the words of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, where it says “30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?” Nechadnezzar II was the king of Babylon for a long time, from about 605 BC to 562 BC. After him the Babylonian empire lasted for only another 23 years, until it was conquered by the Persians in 539 BC. But from the time when the Greeks started writing history, starting with Herodotus, the ancient historians who mention Babylon all believed that the city was built by Semiramis, who was a semi-mythical figure apparently based on an Assyrian queen who lived in the 8th century BC. In the Persian period, about 100 years after Nebuchadnezzar, Herodotus even visited the city, and described its wonders in his writing. But he never even mentioned Nebuchadnezzar.
