dc.description.abstract In the first chapter, the book of Daniel begins with an introduction of the main characters, and a short story about refraining from defilement by eating foreign food. From a literary perspective that focuses on form and content it is clear that this chapter was written as an introduction. This contribution reconsiders what earlier form of the book (Daniel 2-7 or Daniel 2-12) it was meant to introduce. In an attempt to alter scholarly opinion as regards the redaction history of the book of Daniel, the function of this chapter is determined against a second century BCE context. en_US
