If as Nouriel Kaplan, you had mysteriously received the following verses embossed on a seal that you were sent in the mail, where might they lead you?

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, [even] to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.

You may first recognize that the words on the seal appear to be from scripture, and that they are making reference to a literal seal, that the Lord had Daniel place on his book! If that peaked your curiosity you might then go to an online Bible search tool like and type in the verse number. After a little exploration you would find that those verses occur near the end of the last chapter of the book of Daniel. Perhaps this might further inspire you to back up to the beginning of Daniel's prophetic dream where you would discover a specific date pin:

(KJV) Daniel 10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing [was] true, but the time appointed [was] long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.

So this particular dream was revealed to Daniel during the "third year of Cyrus" (rule over Babylon, where Daniel was located). Next you might pick up a Bible handbook, or perhaps simply Google the - first year of Cyrus - (with a little help by clicking on this link to a Google search).

After you find the answer please click on the corresponding button to move to the next step in resolving this mystery.

(If for some reason you were reluctant to click on that Google search link it doesn't matter, because only one button actually works anyway!)
