Use the language of animation to teach the Old Testament story of Daniel and the lions’ den!
Daniel and three of his friends [Shadrach (Hananiah), Meshach (Mishael), and Abednego (Azariah)] were taken as Jewish exiles to Babylon to serve King Nebuchadnezzar. Carefully evaluated and selected for their intellect and beauty, the four youths were trained as Chaldeans (astrologers, sorcerers, enchanters, and magicians) who would serve as advisors to the Babylonian court. While in captivity, the young men outperformed all their rivals, which in turn, pleased the king but frustrated their adversaries.
When Darius, the new king, makes Daniel his first president, Daniel’s enemies plan a trap to have him killed. When Daniel survives being thrown into the lions’ den, he proves that God still governs the affairs of men.
