Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah

Sort by:
Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: (c, 400 BCE) Exiled to Babylon together with Daniel, where they were trained to be chamberlains in the royal court. Despite the personal risk involved, they refused to eat the royal non-kosher cuisine. They were later appointed to government positions. They were thrown into a furnace after refusing to bow to an idol erected by Nebuchadnezzar. Miraculously, they emerged unscathed, as described in the Book of Daniel.
