Family, Lamb, Lion, Revelation 5, Sin
What is in a name? In lots of cases, it doesn’t really make a difference. With Jesus, it makes a difference what the name is. He is so many things to me. He is the whole package. God is God. He is the whole package.
He is the Lamb who takes away my missing God’s goal for me (sin). He came to liberate me from the paycheck of sin, which is death. And he has!! The sacrifice that was required has been made.
He is also the Lion of the tribe of Judah who has triumphed. He has defeated my enemy. In this case, he is no lamb. He is the strong lion who protects me.
He is all this and more. Oh how sweet is the name of our Master Jesus.
Then one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.” Revelation 5:5
