The Mighty Bear, A Two-Horned Ram

View a preview of this tour

Tour Description:

In a divinely inspired dream, the prophet Daniel saw a series of four beasts rising out of the sea, each representing a successive world power. The second was “like a bear.” In a separate vision, Daniel saw “the ram making thrusts to the west and to the north and to the south”. The fearsome bear and the two-horned ram pictured Medo-Persia.

Visit with us astounding historic sites in Iran (ancient Persia) like Ecbatana, Pasargadae, Persepolis, and Shushan. We will learn about the famous Persian kings mentioned in the Bible (Cyrus the Great, Cambyses, Darius I, Xerxes, Artaxerxes Longimanus) and the most famous battles (battle of Marathon, battle of Thermopylae).

The Medo-Persian World Power had existed for just over two centuries. During such a relatively short period of time, the Medes and the Persians had much to do with the outworking of Jehovah God’s purposes and the fulfillment of his unfailing prophecies.

Questions that will be answered on tour:

  • Who were the Medes and Persians? How did the royal palaces reveal the splendor and magnificence of the Persian empire?
  • How Jehovah moved various Persian kings to cooperate with the carrying out of his own sovereign will and protecting the true religion?
  • How did Cyrus the Persian prove to be Jehovah’s “anointed one”?
  • Who were the foretold four kings of Persia? How did the fourth king “rouse up everything against the kingdom of Greece”? (Daniel 11:2)
  • Why was the battle of Marathon significant from a Bible standpoint?

Most amazing tour, a thorough examination of Daniel’s dream regarding Medo Persia fourth world power and ultimate battles with Greece. Clear and understandable, certainly brought it to life. Thank you, helped me immensely.

I thought it was wonderful! The photography was exquisite, especially the re-constructing of the palaces was very beautifully created.
