DANIEL FOUR (1 PART): Pride goes before destruction. This Bible study is about King Nebuchadnezzar’s pride, downfall, and conversion. This study will break down Daniel chapter 4 verse by verse to examine King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream about a great tree that reached to the heavens and was later chopped down. The dream troubles him and of all the wise men, only Daniel interprets the king’s dream. The dream is a foreshadowing of what is going to happen to the king because of his pride; and despite Daniel’s advice to turn from his ways, the king continues down his destructive path. The dream was not just for the king but to inform all the inhabitants of the world throughout history of an important truth. We’ll examine the details of what happens to the king and how/why he is later restored and blessed by God. We’ll identify several critical lessons that warn us of pride and how we can avoid falling into its destructive path.
