Here is the text I cannot get straight in my mind:

“Look up the meaning of Cyrus’ name, and you’ll see four words of particular interest in light of Daniel’s side-by-side timeline of Ezra’s story: possess thou the furnace. Now, the furnace. In the ancient, mid-East would have implications of wrath, punishment, revenge, and terror. It’s everything that you see (and all that you can imagine) happening to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego under Nebuchadnezzar’s reign (who took over the throne after Cyrus’ reign ended) in Daniel 3.”
