Five Min Party – take 1

vs85_15[NOTE: I’m incorporating a new writing challenge called Five Min Friday. Each week a topic is given to inspire a 5 min blog post. This week the topic is ‘messenger’. I’m adding the challenge of using each of the inspiration words for the book only. I think it will be a cool way for me to think about the book in different ways and for readers to learn more about the characters and story.]

As I thought about how the word “messenger” relates to the book, (click here to learn about the book), I realized that the sign that the actual story itself comes from is a messenger! King Nebuchadnezzar himself wrote his story which was duplicated  and posted all over Babylon and the surrounding territories. That sign then became Daniel chapter 4, which in turn became this story, (along with several other sources confirming its validity). King’s letter even begins, “to all the people, nations, and languages of the world…” There were no phones, billboards, TV or radio, and definitely no Facebook, e-mail, or Internet in 560 B.C. so his written words being duplicated and posted all over the kingdom was the means of communicating his message to everyone.

The most amazing part is that his message is still relevant today!

  1. Your book sounds intriguing. Your post reminded me of the eternal relevance of God’s Word and the humanity of those whose stories are recorded there. Visiting from Five Minute Friday. EW

    • Thanks E! You hit the nail on the head – fascinating that it is all still applicable thousands of years later and that King Nebuchadnezzar purposely started the story with “to all the peoples…” he knew it was a story everyone needs to hear
