The Book of Daniel (דניאל), originally written in Hebrew and Aramaic, is a book in both the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) and the Christian Old Testament.

Writer[change | edit source]

The book says that Daniel is its writer in several places, such as 9:2 and 10:2.[1] Jesus agreed when he spoke about " 'the abomination that causes desolation', spoken of through the prophet Daniel".[1] The book was probably completed c. 530 B.C. This was shortly after Cyrus captured Babylon in 539.
