The Ancient Of Days


A question came up in Sunday School this week about the Ancient of Days: Is He Jesus or God the Father, or sometimes either depending on the context?


The phrase “Ancient of Days” appears three times in Scripture, all in Daniel 7. Each time it refers to God the Father. In Daniel 7: 13 both Father and Son are in view with the Father being called “The Ancient of Days” while the Son is called ” one like the Son of man.”
