Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego

These boys from Judah, heroes of the Old Testament, show us how to face the fiery furnaces of life.

ABOUT THIS PARABLE

  • Concept: In the continuing story of The Boys from Judah, we follow the lives of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. After being carried off as spoils of war by the Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar, they are trained and pressed into the service of his empire. These boys face the trial of a lifetime when the king sets up a golden statue and, upon pain of death, orders its worship by the entire kingdom. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, committed to their worship of the God of Israel, refuse. What follows is one of the greatest examples of God’s faithfulness in the entire Bible. This tale is there to encourage us as we face the “fiery furnace” of trials in our own lives.
  • Story Origin: The Bible’s book of Daniel
  • Setting: Old Testament Babylon
  • Precept(s):
    • Stand firm in your faith and trust in God.
    • Our courage and steadfastness in the face of trials can bring others to the knowledge of God.
  • Key Bible Verse: Daniel 3:28 Then Nebuchadnezzar said, “Praise be to the God of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, who has sent his angel and rescued his servants! They trusted in Him and defied the king’s command and were willing to give up their lives rather than serve or worship any god except their own God.”
  • Additional Verses: James 1:2-4
