Antiochus Epiphanes

Answers Concerning Prophecies and things future #13

Antiochus Epiphanes

“And out of one of them came forth a little horn,
which waxed exceeding great,
toward the south, and toward the east, and toward the glorious land.” (Da 8:9 ERV)

No one who is acquainted with the history of Antiochus Epiphanes would say he was the “Little Horn of the Goat” (Dan. viii. 9). The Roman Power, and the Roman only, answers to all the requirements of the prophecy. He was truly of

“fierce countenance” (Dan. viii. 23); “waxed very great towards the South” (verse 9),

for he annexed Egypt 30 B.C.; “toward the East” (verse 9), for Syria became a Roman Province, 63 B.C.; “Toward the pleasant land” (verse 9), for such (Ps. cvi. 24) fell to the Romans 65 B.C. Rome “cast down the place of the sanctuary”, A.D. 70, when Titus, according to Josephus, gave orders to his army to “demolish the whole city and the Temple”. In neither of these exploits did Antiochus succeed, but completely failed.

Dr. Thomas has dealt with the “Little Horn of the Goat” most exhaustively in “Eureka” and “Elpis Israel”, a comprehensive digest of which is found in “How Long?”
