Nebuchadnezzar’s Golden Statue


Please download and print, then bring this handout on Daniel 3 with you to Monday night’s study.  Here are some of the questions we will be discussing:

  1. What motivated Nebuchadnezzar to build this tall, golden statue?
  2. Why did he use music to get the people to bow in worship to the statue?
  3. Who were the Chaldeans?
  4. What motivated them to bring accusations against Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego?
  5. How does Nebuchadnezzar’s question (v. 15) set up the ending of this story?
  6. What practical life lessons can be gleaned from their response to the king in vv. 16-18?
  7. What are some ways we are asked to compromise within our culture in order to fit in with the general public?
  8. How would you feel if required to make a choice of faith that could result in your death?
  9. As a result of the obedience of these three Hebrews, how does Nebuchadnezzar ultimately respond?  (vv. 28-30)

Here is an interesting artist’s rendition of the golden statue that you may want to print and add to your notebooks.

Dessert will be served at 7 pm … the study starts shortly after that!
