I am wondering if anybody already found a solution for king “Darius the Mede” who occurs in the book of Daniel. The “problem” is that critics suggest that he never existed since we don’t find him anywhere except for the book of Daniel and especially that the book has been written in the 2nd century B.C. and that the author probably just made a mistake.
I know that critics who claimed that biblical characters never existed or books were written later than we (as Christians) assume were often disproved when archeologist found something new. I am still wondering if anyone knows some evidence that the book of Daniel was written by Daniel itself and maybe has approaches to explain “Darius the Mede”.
