Pentateuch traditions and themes in Daniel

In this article a survey is done of traditions and themes from the Pentateuch traditions in the book of Daniel. The results reveal only two types of references: to Jewish observance of the Mosaic law leading to Antiochic persecution and those to the Torah and the covenant in Daniel 9. The article indicates that the references in Daniel 9 are probably secondary interpolations. This leads to the question: Why are those traditions and themes that are important to the Pentateuch not important to the writer of the book of Daniel. A theory that would explain the lack of Pentateuch traditions is suggested.
