A little extra, as I was reading my Bible last night.

In 2 Kings (and 2 Chronicles), it mentions how Nebuchadnezzar started taking people away to Babylon. In Daniel, it says that this happened in the 3rd year of Jehoiakim's reign. Let's assume Daniel was 18 when he was captured... if you trace backwards, Daniel would have been about 15 or 16 when Jehoiakim began his reign as king. The previous king was only around for 3 months, and before that, the guy in charge was Josiah, who was Israel's king for 31 years.

Josiah was a very God-fearing king, and did all he could to make sure that his country put God first. Daniel came from nobility (according to the book of Daniel), so he would have spent his childhood relatively close to Josiah. I wonder how much influence a godly king like Josiah had on young Daniel's life and actions in Babylon?
