St Daniel Bethany Saints Wall Cross
Genuine pewter, with prayer card.
The traditional story of Daniel begins when he was a youth. The King of Babylon attacked Jerusalem, overran it, and took many of its people into captivity, among them Daniel. Because he was handsome and bright, he was trained in the king's household, where he remained faithful to Jewish law despite many temptations.
He became very popular with the king, for whom he interpreted dreams, including the fall of the Kingdom to invaders. Under the conquering King Darius, Daniel was thrown into a cage of lions to be eaten alive, but when God saved his life, Darius the King ruled that all in his Kingdom were free to worship Daniel's God.
