Sermon Notes
Jesus: The Greatest Hero ~ Daniel 7

  • A “hero” is a person of great courage and character, a role model, or a person of great valor who makes sacrifices for others. In all of these descriptions, Jesus is the greatest Hero.
  • In the world there are kings and kingdoms that rise and fall (7:1-8, 15-26)
    • Daniel saw a vision of 4 kingdoms that would impact God’s people: Babylon, Persia, Greece, and Rome
    • These produced frightful and unsure times that challenged the faith of God’s people, times that needed hope and rescue
  • Hope and rescue are in King Jesus and his eternal kingdom (7:9-28)
    • God is still sovereign over all
    • Jesus rules as the great King
    • His kingdom is already present in the world but not yet fully manifested in its glory
    • King Jesus shares his kingdom with his people
      • Live as one rescued and made righteous by Jesus through faith as you spread his fame (7:18)
      • Trust Jesus to turn all wrongs to rights and do not fear the world powers (7:21-22)
      • Look forward to ruling with Jesus and so display his goodness and mission (7:27, 12:1-3)
