Faith in Captivity

Faith in Captivity

Story illustrations from Daniel chapter 1 from the Bible


Wicked Worship

Israel turned from God and worshipped idols made from wood and stone, iron and bronze, silver and gold. They worshipped things created instead of the Creator.

Cruel Conqueror

For Israel’s disobedience God allowed their enemies to enslave them. The Babylonians were wicked and did not fear the God of heaven and earth. King Nebuchadnezzar conquered with power and pride.

Pagan Delight

The pagan king offered the boys flesh of the fattest beasts, his own choice wine, and the finest dainties Babylon could produce, but Daniel purposed in his heart not to defile himself with these temptations.

Food of Faith

God granted Daniel favour with his master and the boys were served vegetables and water for a ten day test. Appearing fairer and stronger than the others, their diet was changed permanently and they joyfully ate the food
of faith.

Before the King

At the appointed time the king asked the boys many difficult questions, and in every area they were found to be ten times wiser than all the king’s counsellors. God had richly blessed their faithfulness.
