TXT: Daniel’s Friends

Question: Why don’t we call Daniel’s friends by their Hebrew names?


There’s no biblical reason why we can’t!  My take is that this is a matter of simple tradition within the church.  It is something that is of no real significance that I can see.  Isn’t it interesting that we have always referred to Daniel as ‘Daniel’ (his Hebrew name) rather than Belteshazzar?
