An exposition revealing what the seven chrono-specific predictive prophecies in Daniel say about history
The Book of Daniel itself, in chapter 12, verses 8 & 9, says "And I heard, but I understood not: then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things? He said, Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end."
The seven chrono-specific predictive prophecies revealed to the prophet Daniel in Babylon were sealed up to prevent them from being prematurely understood. It was ordained by God in Daniel 12:9 that the prophecies would remain sealed away from understanding until the time of the end. For more than two-thousand years, Jewish and Christian expositors have attempted to interpret the prophecies in Daniel before they were unsealed, with little success.
The list of past expositors who have chosen to ignore what God said about the prophecies being sealed until the time of the end is lengthy, and includes such luminaries as Rashi in Judaism, and in Christianity Matthew Henry, John Nelson Darby, C. I. Scofield, Sir Robert Anderson, Arno C. Gaebelein, Clarence Larkin, H. A. Ironside, John F. Walvoord, Leon J. Wood, and Edward J. Young, to name but a few who have enjoyed popularity.
Now, twenty-five hundred years after the prophecies were sealed in Babylon, God has signaled to us by an event occurring in Jerusalem that the prophecies in Daniel are now unsealed. The return of the Temple Mount to Jewish sovereignty on June 7, 1967, during the Six-Day War, was the specific event that God used to announce the unsealing, and it occurred at the precise time and place prophesied in Daniel 8:14. The eschatological significance of that event went unnoticed by Bible scholars, but it has since turned out to be the key that was needed to understand all of the Danielic prophecies.
Using that recently revealed interpretive key, Bible scholar and sacred chronologist Dan Bruce has interpreted the Danielic prophecies anew for this generation. His updated exposition fully explains the seven chrono-specific predictive prophecies that were sealed up in the Book of Daniel so long ago. His fresh new Bible-true and historically accurate interpretations are cogent and unique, and give undeniable proof that the God of the Bible always has been, and still is, actively engaged in the affairs of mankind. By showing how the past two-thousand-plus years of Jewish history were foretold by the prophecies in Daniel and how, one by one, those prophecies have been fulfilled in history exactly as predicted, this book will open the eyes and ears of anyone who questions the reality of God's omniscience and sovereign presence in the world today.
To sum up, you can read the correct interpretations of the chrono-specific predictive prophecies in Daniel in this book. The prophecies, all of them, are explained in detail, and the interpretations match the text of the Bible and agree with recorded history exactly. All valid interpretations must do both. Since its publication, no scholar, preacher, or Bible teacher has been able to show from the Bible or recorded history where the interpretations in this book fail to do either.
"This outstanding exegesis of the Book of Daniel has yet to be discovered by Jews and Christians alike. There are several authors who claim that their exposition of Daniel deserves the title 'Unsealed.' This one delivers on that promise and is very likely to remain unsurpassed!"---from a review by a veteran Bible translator
