Vision of the Ram and Goat

Dr. Richard L. Hamm

In his vision Daniel saw himself in the palace in Susa, one of the Persian royal cities, more than 200 miles east of Babylon on the Ulai Canal. A century later the Persian king Xerxes built a magnificent palace there, which was where the events recorded in the Book of Esther took place (Es. 1:2). Also, Nehemiah was King Artaxerxes’ cupbearer in the Susa palace (Neh. 1:1). This second vision of Daniel began with him seeing a ram with two long horns near the canal.
