The Babylonian army has just invaded Jerusalem. Much of the city has been destroyed. But the soldiers have been instructed to round up several boys who can serve in the King's court. Daniel is one of the boys who is singled out. When Daniel reveals that he has a gift for interpreting dreams, he gains the King's favour and is elevated to a position of power.
There are many heroes in the Old Testament. Some are great warriors. But others are men of quiet faith--men who display their courage not on the battle field, but simply by refusing to disobey God. Daniel is such a man. His story has been brought to life in a beautifully animated film that will appeal to your entire family. Daniel and the Lion's Den is one of the twelve programs in the Greatest Heroes and Legends of the Bible series. This program features: All-new animation, an introduction by Charlton Heston, and "Simon & Gimmel -Your Faithful Guides," two animated characters who lead viewers through the story and make it accessible for all ages
