The Book of Daniel is one of the most enigmatic and fascinating books of Hebrew Scripture - full of dreams, visions, miracles and heavenly figures - and one of the least studied biblical books among Jews. Many Christians on the other hand, see it as foundational to their faith and study it religiously. This class will present a Jewish perspective on the book, highlighting its role in preparing the way for post Scriptural Judaism. Reference will also be made to Christian interpretations of certain passages, especially those understood as prefiguring the advent of Jesus as messiah.
