He had nine sisters and one brother. His parents were leaseholders of a hacienda and an accompanying rice farm by the Dominicans. Like many families in the Philippines, the Rizals were of mixed origin.
He sees the "great sea" stirred up by the "four winds of heaven," and from the waters emerge four beasts, the first a lion with the wings of an eagle, the second a bear, the third a winged leopard with four heads, and the fourth a beast with ten horns, and a further horn appeared which uprooted three of the ten.
As Daniel watches, the Ancient of Days takes his seat on the throne of heaven and sits in judgement in the midst of the heavenly court, the fourth and worst beast is put to death, and a being like a human "like a son of man" approaches the Ancient One in the clouds of heaven and is given everlasting kingship.
A heavenly being explains the vision: The use of Aramaic and its place in the chiasm link it to the first half, while the use of Daniel as first-person narrator and its emphasis on visions link it to the second.
There is also a temporal shift: The overall structure can be described as follows: Apocalypses are characterized by visions, symbolism, an other-worldly mediator, an emphasis on cosmic events, angels and demons, and pseudonymity false authorship.
Daniel is one of the maskilim, the wise, whose task is to teach righteousness. Four monarchies Historical background: The Roman Empire in turn eventually took control over those parts of the Middle East to the west of Mesopotamia.
Interpreting Jewish opposition as motivated by religion and culture, he outlawed Jewish customs such as circumcisionkosher dietary restrictions, Sabbath observance, and the Jewish scriptures the Torah.
Its transformation into a man reverses Nebuchadnezzar's transformation into a beast in chapter 4, and the "human mind" may reflect his regaining sanity; the "plucked wings" reflect both loss of power and the transformation to a human state. The four heads may reflect the four Persian kings of Daniel The Greeks and particularly the Seleucids of Syria.
The "ten horns" that appear on the beast is a round number standing for the Seleucid kings between Seleucus Ithe founder of the kingdom, and Antiochus Epiphanes.
The "three horns" uprooted by the "little horn" reflect the fact that Antiochus was fourth in line to the throne, and became king after his brother and one of his brother's sons were murdered and the second son exiled to Rome.
Antiochus was responsible only for the murder of one of his nephews, but the author of Daniel 7 holds him responsible for all.
Israelite monotheism should have only one throne as there is only one god, but here we see multiple thrones, suggesting the mythic background to the vision.
He is surrounded by fire and an entourage of "ten thousand times ten thousand", an allusion to the heavenly hosts attending Yahwehthe God of Israel, as he rides to battle against his people's enemies. There is no battle, however; instead "the books" are opened and the fate of Israel's enemies is decided by God's sovereign judgement.
The usual suggestion is that this figure represents the triumph of the Jewish people over their oppressor; the main alternative view is that he is the angelic leader of God's heavenly host, a connection made explicitly in chapterswhere the reader is told that the conflict on Earth is mirrored by a war in heaven between Michaelthe angelic champion of Israel, assisted by Gabrieland the angelic "princes" of Greece and Persia; the idea that he is the messiah is sometimes advanced, but Daniel makes no clear reference to the messiah elsewhere.
