Special Revelation to offset such Violent Persecution: It's as if because people like John the Baptist & the Apostle Paul suffered such persecution, that God offset that by giving them special Revelation to keep them going. [Luke 12:48]
Timeline of Daniel being a Problem: Daniel & his companions were in a 3 year training program, so how could Daniel give insight to Nebuchadnezzar in only his second year of training? Is that why Nebuchadnezzar didn't originally call on them in the first round? [Daniel 1:1, Daniel 2:1]
Speaking in Aramaic & The King of the Statue: Why did the Chaldeans speak in Aramaic? [Daniel 2:4] The 4 Kingdoms of Daniel 2, the way my Bible has the subnotes identifying them, are they correct? [Daniel 2:36-39]
