  ABSTRACTTHE HISTORY OF THE ADVENTIST INTERPRETATIONOF THE “DAILY” IN THE BOOK OF DANIELFROM 1831 TO 2008 byDenis Kaiser Adviser: Denis Fortin  ABSTRACT OF GRADUATE STUDENT RESEARCHThesisAndrews UniversitySeventh-day Adventist Theological SeminaryTitle: THE HISTORY OF THE ADVENTIST INTERPRETATION OF THE “DAILY”IN THE BOOK OF DANIEL FROM 1831 TO 2008 Name of the researcher: Denis Kaiser  Name and degree of faculty adviser: Denis Fortin, Ph.D.Date completed: July 2009During the more than 160 years since Adventism’s inception, the interpretation of the  îd  or “daily” in the book of Daniel underwent several changes with respect to theidentification of the term itself, the employed methodology, and the style of argumentation, as well as the way differing views are handled.This study analyzes various Millerite and Adventist interpretations of the  îd  inDan 8 between 1831 and 2008, focusing especially on the approach to the biblical text,the argumentation, and the atmosphere during the time of conflict (1900 – 1930), as wellas on Ellen White’s counsels during that period, her puzzling statement, and possibleexplanations.  This documentary study was based primarily on published primary sources produced by Millerites and Seventh-day Adventists from 1831 to 2008. Both primary andsecondary sources were used to provide background, historical context, and perspectivefor the present study.While Seventh-day Adventists first adhered to the Millerite interpretation of the“daily” as Roman paganism, beginning around the turn of the nineteenth century theyidentified it as Christ’s heavenly ministration. The proponents of the Milleriteinterpretation eventually relied more on tradition and their understanding of a statementon the “daily” written by Ellen White in 1850. The proponents of the new interpretationdrew their reasons rather from exegetical studies. This change did not happen withoutcontroversy, and both groups were responsible for the intensity of the conflict. EllenWhite’s statement referred to the prophetic dates and the supplying of the word“sacrifice” in the text of Dan 8 rather than to a specific identification of the “daily.”  Andrews UniversitySeventh-day Adventist Theological SeminaryTHE HISTORY OF THE ADVENTIST INTERPRETATIONOF THE “DAILY” IN THE BOOK OF DANIELFROM 1831 TO 2008A ThesisPresented in Partial Fulfillmentof the Requirements for the DegreeMaster of Arts byDenis Kaiser July 2009
