Daniel's position in the Tanach, the LXX-Vulgate, and the Protestant canon



Jordan Scheetz

Tyndale Theological Seminary, Netherlands





Starting from the observation that Daniel has different placements in the Tanach, Septuagint, Vulgate, and Protestant Canon, this essay examines the early historical evidence in relation to biblical collections and in particular the placement of Daniel within these collections. The argument is that these various placements are due to the dialogue already present within the Book of Daniel and further continues into the various placements within these different canons. The exegetical significance is found not only in the text being placed among the other texts of the canon, but also through the actual arrangement of these texts (its canonical intertextuality).
