Ezra 3-5, Revelation 5
Love this picture in revelation of how Jesus is portrayed as the lamb that was slain.
12saying with a loud voice,
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might
and honor and glory and blessing!”
The Bible Project video for Revelations points out that John hears the elder talking of “The Lion & the conqueror” yet John turns and see “a lamb that was slain”. It is fascinating how both descriptions are accurate views of Jesus. How the narrative of salvation is so different than what the Jews were expecting!
It is such a cool picture to see elders and the holiest in Heaven fall at the feet of Jesus as he opens the scroll in revelation. It reminds me of the song “I can only imagine” where the singer talks about what he’ll do when he meets Jesus. We’ll probably all fall at his feet too overwhelmed by his love!! I can’t wait!!
11And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord,
“For he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever toward Israel.”
And all the people shouted with a great shout when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid.
