This small book compares the three primary interpretations of Daniel 11:40-45. The author, Pastor John Witcombe, believes that a correct interpretation of the phrase, King of the South in verse 40, is the key to unlocking Daniel 11.
The first presenter at a Daniel 11 Prophecy Symposium in 2011 provided a figurative (symbolic) interpretation of this phrase, teaching that the king of the south is a figure for atheism. The second presenter also gave a figurative interpretation of this phrase, teaching that it is a figure for Islam.
The third presenter (John Witcombe) took Uriah Smith’s position. In his book, Daniel and the Revelation, Smith takes this phrase, king of the south, “as it reads” and explains it “according to its obvious meaning,” giving a literal interpretation, teaching that the king of the south was literally the king or civil leader of Egypt, which was the southern geographical region of Alexander’s divided Empire.
