Quotable

16 May

“If the traditional interpretation is correct, then we can say that Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome no longer exists as powers.  And even the contemporary kingdoms of this world–United Kingdom, the United States, China–they will all pass away.  But on a hill called Golgotha, God established his reign in Jesus’ death; and on the third day, he vindicated his King as the True King over the world.  And King Jesus is subjecting every enemy to himself until the day comes where sin and death, the world and the devil, shall be no more.  He is establishing his reign, and when he is done, God will be all in all.

It is striking–the king of the known world [Nebuchadnezzar] fell on his face prostrate before an exiled Jew [Daniel]…And in the same way, all the kings of this world at the end of the age will lie prostrate at the feet of a crucified Jew [Jesus Christ, the King].”
-Sean Michael Lucas (select passage from Daniel: Trusting the True Hero [Christian Focus, 2011])
