Dreams during the Roman Era were thought to be messages from the Gods. Many dreams were submitted to the Senate for dream analysis and interpretation regarding many issues of the day. In addition, dream interpreters accompanied military leaders into battle and campaigns for their help in deciphering the messages from the Gods.
Two of the most famous dreams of course are from the Bible: Joseph who was Pharaoh’s adviser and dream interpreter interpreted the famous dream Pharaoh had on the seven fat cows followed by seven skinny cows. Another famous dream interpreter is Daniel from the Bible and is considered by many vital to the history of dream interpretation. In the book of Daniel, he (Daniel) is King Nebuchadnezzar’s adviser and the King would not tell his dreams to his advisers in order to prove they were true seers, he demanded that they divine as well as interpret his dreams. (No Pressure there!) Anyway, Daniel prayed to God to reveal the Kings dream and his wish was granted.
Is it not known to all people that the dream is the most usual way that God reveals himself to man?
Sweet and Prosperous Dreams.
