Question 4

  Daniel 6: 1 - 28

  • How did Daniel demonstrate faith and power during the reign of Darius?
  • What two messages does this episode have for Christians?

This was the most popular question in this section.  Unfortunately, some of those candidates who attempted it lost marks because they wrote on the story of Shadrach, Meshack and Abednego during the reign of King Nebuchadnezzar, instead of narrating the story of Daniel in the den of Lions as demanded by the question. Similarly, most of the candidates who attempted this question did not appreciate the deep emotion which Darius felt for Daniel when against his wishes, he was persuaded to carry out the punishment laid out in the decree against the man he himself was planning to place in charge of the other satraps presidents.
However, the (b) part of the question came to their rescue as they were able to marshal the points well which eventually fetch them some good marks.
