This article focuses on the experience of Daniel as participant in the visions that are told in Hebrew in the book of Daniel (chs 8–12). In doing so, it argues for a continuity of wise participation in the divine life that has characterized events told in Dan 1–6 and culminating in the throne room vision of ch. 7. Reading Dan 7 as the theological hinge of the book of Daniel, the article argues that the experience of Daniel as visionary in chs. 8–12 sheds further light on the nature of wise participation in the divine life. From the resulting conversation between chs. 8–12 and 1–6, mediated by the throne room vision, emerges a rich and variegated, and occasionally paradoxical picture of the nature of wise participation in the divine life as conveyed in the book of Daniel.
