Daniel 11

(The Medo- Persian Empire)

 

Daniel 11

 

"And in the first year of Darius the Mede, I took my stand to support and protect him. Now then, I tell you the truth: Three more kings will appear in Persia, and then a fourth, who will be far richer than all the others. When he has gained power by his wealth, he will stir up everyone against the kingdom of Greece." Verses 1 & 2

 

Historically we can see the fulfillment of this prophecy. In 538/39 BC, Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon. It appears that Cyrus of Daniel 10:1 is the same person as Darius the Mede in Daniel 5:31 and Daniel 11:1. It appears that kings in those days had both a personal name and a throne title. It appears that Darius is "an alternative title for Cyrus the Persian himself." Compton’s NIV
