Tidbits of History
Most people have heard of the saga about the biblical prophet Daniel being thrown into the den of lions. But perhaps you don’t know why he received this consequence. The story is recounted in Daniel Chapter Six. Even though Daniel was a Hebrew man under captivity in Babylon, he had earned high respect from the king and was about to become the equivalent of a prime minister. Out of jealousy, others vying for the position concocted a scheme to prevent Daniel from getting this promotion. Deceiving the King, they devised a law that would make praying to any other entity other than the King a crime, punishable by being cast into the den of lions where the victim would surely die.
When Daniel heard of the new law, this is what he did,“Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went home. And in his upper room, with his windows open toward Jerusalem, he knelt down on his knees three times that day, and prayed and gave thanks before his God, as was his custom since early days.” Daniel 6:10
Daniel’s faithfulness to His God was so strong that no matter what, he would not change nor would he bow to any other being. Consequently, he was thrown into the den of lions where he should have been mauled to death and eaten. But God sent His angels to close the mouths of the lions, saving Daniel’s life which served as proof of the reality of the one and only God.
The Daniel-Fast explained
Prove thy servants, I beseech thee, ten days; and let them give us pulse to eat, and water to drink. Daniel 1:12
In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. Daniel 10:2-3
The Daniel Fast is a partial fast practiced by millions of Christians around the world. The definition of a biblical fast is to restrict some or all food for a spiritual purpose. The Daniel Fast is modeled after the fasting experiences of the Hebrew prophet when he and his companions were in captivity in Babylon. Not wanting to defile his body by eating the king’s food, Daniel asked to be fed only pulse (food grown from seed) and drink only water. Daniel wrote of another of his fasts in which he ate no pleasant bread (leavened), drank no wine and ate no meat. With these guidelines, the Daniel Fast eating plan can be described as a vegan diet with more restrictions.
Men, women and teens who enter a period of prayer and fasting using the Daniel Fast experience answers to prayers, a more intimate relationship with God, a significant improvement in their health and well-being and also develop positive habits for their lifestyle as followers of Jesus Christ.

A bit of Lentil History
Some of the earliest archeological dating goes back 13,000 years to caves discovered in Greece. They have been an important staple over the centuries and were mentioned in the bible in Genesis 25:30-34. In this story Esau gave up his birth right for a bowl of lentils.
