VBS Day 1 Summary
Daniel – The Captivity
Daniel 1:1 – 21
King Nebuchadnezzar, ruler of the Babylonian people, conquered Jerusalem and took sacred items from the temple and many captives back with him to his kingdom. The king ordered his chief of staff to select young, strong, smart men who had been captured to train to work in his service. Of those selected were four friends, Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, who were given new Babylonian names: Belteshazzar, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego respectively. The king ordered that the young men chosen for training should be given food and wine prepared in his kitchen to ensure that they were well nourished. Daniel refused to consume the food and wine
as it was not prepared according to God’s law. The king’s chief of staff worried that if Daniel didn’t eat this food, he would be weaker than the rest of the young men in training and the king would become angry at the chief of staff and might have him killed. Daniel made a deal with the servants in charge of taking care of Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah. If he would allow these four men to have only vegetables and water for 10 days, the servant could then compare them to the others who had been eating and drinking from the king’s kitchens. After 10 days, the servant noticed that Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah looked healthier and stronger than all of the men in training.
