Shaggy Goats & the Supremacy of God

Episode 46 | Daniel | Released October 12, 2020 | Special guest: Dr. Hays

It’s the final week of our Daniel series, and Raechel and Amanda speak with author and Biblical Studies professor, Dr. J. Daniel Hays. Dr. Hays’s enthusiasm captivates our hosts, from his Babylon-themed virtual background to his fondness for the word schmutz. They discuss the bizarre visions of chapters 8–12, along with apocalyptic imagery and names that could double as tongue twisters (try saying Antiochus Epiphanes a few times). However perplexing these passages are, the three continue to identify this clear truth: God’s plans are unstoppable, and one day, we will see all prophecy from His Word fulfilled.
