DanEs combines Daniel and Esther; Daniel was a prophet and Esther was a Jewish maiden, both found in the Old Testament.
Daniel was the second son of David and the last of the four Major Prophets. Daniel was a youth of noble descent and high physical and intellectual endowments. In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim, Nebuchadnezzer besieged Jerusalem and Daniel was carried off captive to Babylon. By his prophecy Daniel wishes to show the struggle between the world and God, the natural or secular and the supernatural, the material and the spiritual, and ultimately the victory of the spiritual over the material world.
Esther was a Jewish maiden and the daughter of Abihail of Benjamin. She lived in exile with her uncle and foster-father Mordecia. When King Ahasuerus deposed Queen Vashti, Esther was chosen as queen. Haman, a vain courtier and minister of the king, was angered by Mordecia because he refused to give Haman homage that belongs to God alone. Haman with the king’s consent arranged a general massacre of the Jewish people, unaware that Queen Esther was also a Jew. Esther disclosed the malice of Haman to the king, saved her people from destruction, and furthered their cause greatly in the empire.
