And they sang a new song, saying,
“Worthy are you to take the scroll[REVELATION 5:9-10]
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,
10and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”
The Lord Jesus Christ is revealed to us through Scripture in a complex array of characteristics and with a myriad of faces and a variety of functions as the Son of God and Son of Man. In His humanity Jesus is revealed as the Suffering Servant, the Worthy Lamb of God who lays down His life. In His deity, Jesus is the Roaring Lion who is coming as the conquering King of kings and Judge of all the earth.
This dynamic dichotomy is seen most distinctly in Revelation 5, where Jesus takes the scroll from the right hand of the Father and rises up to accomplish God’s will and bring everything to its appointed end.
