Please help clear up some confusion for me.
According to the Bible, Daniel was alive during the time of Nebuchadnezzar, and Esther was around the time of King Xerxes. Which meant that Daniel, served under King Nebuchadnezzar, his son - Balthazar, then the persian King Darius, who, according to Daniel 9 is the son of Xerxes. This seems to indicate that the Jews were first captured by the Medes and Persians? and then again by the Babylonians?
I know its possible for the two empires to exist simultaneously, and then later one over powering the other - but it just seems there is a bit of overlap regarding the capturing of the Jews.
I also visited a few online sites which stated that the Bible has made huge errors with regards to Daniel and Esther, which of course if a whole other kettle of fish. Can someone offer some clarification on this please.
