Introduction to the Sermon of the Mount

The great themes of the book of Daniel are driven home one last time in the final chapters: the sovereignty of God over all kings and thrones and empires, and the centrality of the Church in all God’s purposes.
For all his heroics, Daniel’s greatest service may have been what he did in the last years of his life, as an old man in his eighties.
This famous prophecy is often applied to the second coming of Christ. Could it instead be a vivid and beautiful description of the work of Christ in his first coming?
