Daniel 11:38

Daniel 11:38 says, "But in his estate shall he honour the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honour with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things."  The Hebrew word translated as "fathers" is "avotay," which is the plural form of "ab"--meaning "father"--from which "abba" comes from.

This verse is speaking of the Antichrist.  Yet it may very well speak of Antiochus Epiphanes, who was a Greek/Gentile/Israelite.  His fathers were the patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
