Abstract This article presents a new structural analysis of the Daniel narratives in Chapters 1–6. This structure is based on a new reading of the Daniel narratives from a perspective that emphasizes the tension between earthly and divine rule. Rather than focusing on the conflict between the Jewish courtier and his environment, the article highlights his internal identity conflict—he is caught between his loyalty to God and that to the king. The article thus sheds new light on the Daniel narratives in general and specifically on Daniel 1.
