Nebuchadnezzar's Dream (Daniel 2:1-49)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: God’s wisdom prevails.
In our bible story we learned:
1. The wise men cannot interpret the king’s dream.
2. Daniel pleads for the lives of other wise men.
3. Daniel interprets the kings dream.
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Read Romans 9:32-33.
The most important part of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream was the part about a great rock from God that destroyed the statue and grew into a mountain and filled the whole earth. The rock was a picture of Jesus Christ and the mountain a picture of God’s kingdom. Throughout the Bible, God uses a rock or stone to represent his work on the earth. Another example is when water came out from a rock in the desert for the children of Israel to drink.
Later in the New Testament, we are told that the rock in the desert represents Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4). Jesus compared a life lived for God to a house that was strong and sturdy because it was built on the rock of God’s truth (Matthew 7:24). The apostle Paul said that the rock of God’s truth is Jesus (Romans 9:33).

Pray about it! Thank Jesus for crushing our enemies — sin and death — when he died on the cross. Now we can trust the Lord and be free from the power of sin and live forever in heaven with God.
