A New Viewpoint of the Clay and Iron of Daniel Chapter 2 — 3 Comments

  1. We call clay covered iron “Enamel”

    Many appliances are made this way, certain types of dishware and so on. A well known, low tech, process.

    The process makes the iron so it does not rust, ie preserves it across time. (ie a long term fraud, since Roman times, at least.)

    The process makes it pretty, so it looks nice. (Doesn’t democracy look nice? Seducing, even, to the crowds.)

    The plastering process on Ebal and Gerizim is similar, baked by the sun instead of iron in an oven, and there are textual parallels to that story from Daniel.
