Metallic man in Daniel

undefined

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

28 Tishrei 5766
Question
In the Book of Daniel King Nebuchadnezzer’s metalic man dream. Is the feet Iron and Clay coming in our day then after we will become that great mountain? Does the metalic image refers to Gentiles power over Israel?
Answer
The dream is interpreted by Daniel and refers to the different empires that will rule the world and the Jews as well. The prophetic book of Daniel is not a simple one and the interpretation to our times is not clear. The commentators do give names of empires but the exact dates are kept a secret.
