Nebuchadnezzar's Lions

'Just Stories?' #18

What's in the series?      Previous: Robin Hood      Next: The Last King of Babylon

A new addition in the British Museum is a glazed relief of a winged lion. This comes from the palace of Nebuchadnezzar, king of the Babylonian empire, around 600 BC. What does this have to do with the Bible? Nebuchadnezzar is the king in the Bible’s story of Daniel.

In the book of Daniel, Nebuchadnezzar erects a giant statue, and commands everyone to worship it. Three of Daniel’s friends refuse to worship, and they are thrown into a fiery furnace. This was an obvious punishment for the day: Nebuchadnezzar was a great builder, who made millions of these hard glazed, brightly coloured bricks.  All around the city there were fiery furnaces used to make these bricks.

With Ian Cooper, pastor of Tollgate Evangelical Church in Reigate, UK.
