The Handwriting On the Wall

Talk to 5 people on the street and ask them what the phrase "The Handwriting On the Wall" means. They'll have some idea because it's become part of American colloquialism. But ask them where its from or what the original context was, and they won't be able to tell you. This Thursday, we'll deal with what the phrase really means, and it's historic context when first spoken: when the prophet Daniel was summoned before the last Babylonian emperor Beshazzar, who was so frightened by what he saw that his knees knocked together convulsively. Tune in and take notes! Your host, Rev. Rick Anderson on Jewish Roots, each Thursday night 9:30 pm, at www.blogtalkradio.com/fougcrew. To call in with a question on comment: 347-324-5759.
