Nebuchadnezzar’s Dream

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God wisdom prevails

Key Verse:
The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer” 
Psalm 18:2a

Read: 
(Open the bible and read to your child Daniel 2:1-49) Daniel and his friends were all exiles from Judah. They were taken to Babylon when King Nebuchadnezzar invaded Judah. God was with them and blessed them, so they became counted among the wise men of Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar had a disturbing dream and wanted to know what it meant. None of his wise men could interpret the dream, so the King wanted them dead. When Daniel heard about this, he went to the King and interpreted the dream for him. Before he told Nebuchadnezzar the interpretation, Daniel pleads for the lives of the other wise men. Daniel was not only wise and had God’s favor, he was kind hearted and cared about others more than himself.

The Jesus Connection:
Read Romans 9:32–33.
The most important part of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was the part about a great rock from God that destroyed the statue and grew into a mountain and filled the whole earth. The rock was a picture of Jesus Christ and the mountain a picture of God’s kingdom. Throughout the Bible, God uses a rock or stone to represent his work on the earth. Another example is when water came out from a rock in the desert for the children of Israel to drink. Later in the New Testament, we are told that the rock in the desert represents Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4). Jesus compared a life lived for God to a house that was strong and sturdy because it was built on the rock of God’s truth (Matthew 7:24). The apostle Paul said that the rock of God’s truth is Jesus (Romans 9:33).
