Dan 11:21-34. After the incredible predictions of the Kings of the North (Syria) and South (Egypt) and some of the events between these Seleucid and Ptolemaic kingdoms, Daniel now focuses on the infamous Seleucid King, Antiochus IV Epiphanes. Thie “vile king that shall rise” has more focus in the scripture than the others due to his persecution of the Jews, but also because he foreshadows that last infamous Gentile King of the future, The Anti-Christ.
