Daniel (pt 7): Roman Period
The important thing about this period is obviously the identification of
the Roman Empire (and following broken empire) as the IRON LEGS
and IRON/CLAY feet of Daniel's vision in the early part of Daniel.
We must sadly put up with a lot of disinformation in the old commentaries,
especially those produced from German scholarship after the 'Enlightenment',
and throughout the 19th century, when over-critical explanations of
Daniel's amazing prophecies were rampant.
Now is a good time to take a small diversion to look at those attempts
to discredit Daniel and the prophecies, which were done for the rather
transparent purpose of destroying the Christian interpretation of Daniel,
and of course discrediting Christianity itself.
