 Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Daniel 2:24-49. Compare the words of Arioch with Daniel. What stands out?
  2. In what ways does Daniel model Philippians 2:3-4?
  3. Over the years, many Christians get caught up in identifying the details of the dream. What does God want to communicate through the dream to Nebuchadnezzar? To Israel in exile? To us?
  4. What does the stone represent? Consider Luke 20:17-18.
  5. Is the fulfill of this dream past, present, or future? Why? In light of the dream, how shall we live in relation to the “kingdoms” of this world?
