Dr. John Walton, Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College Graduate School, and I recently had a chat on Exegetically Speaking. He lays out the importance of knowing the context of a passage to understand it.  After discussing four kinds of context for exegesis, he focuses on the historical context.  As a test case, he takes us to Daniel 7:1 to understand what is happening historically at the time of Daniel’s fantastic vision.
