Four Men in the Furnace (Daniel 3)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: Our God is able to deliver us.
In our bible story we learned:
1. Nebuchadnezzar demands that all his subjects worship his gold statue.
2. Through faith, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego refuse to worship.
3. God delivers his servants.
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
“…quenched the power of fire…” - Hebrews 11:34.
In the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, there is an obvious answer to “Where is Jesus?” The Son of God was with them in the fire as the fourth person. Just as God was willing to come down to earth to save them from the fire, so Jesus was willing to come down to earth as a man to save us from our sins. God delivers these men from the flames so that not even their clothing is singed!
Though not mentioned by name in Hebrews 11:34, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego certainly “quenched the power of fire.” These three men are a part of the “great cloud of witnesses” that the book of Hebrews says should motivate us to look to Jesus (Hebrews 12:1–2).
