Day 339, December 5 - Revelation 5

Click here for today's reading

2b: Mighty Messenger: Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?

5b: One of the 24 Elders: Stop weeping. Look there—the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David. He has conquered and is able to break its seven seals and open the scroll.

Context is referring to Jesus is worthy of breaking the seals and opening the scroll. But I believe because Jesus has conquered the grave he can break other things... :)


  1. I picked out the same verse. He is worthy to open the scroll and because he died and conquered death, it is only through him that we receive eternal life. So, even though we aren't worthy to open the scroll, we get the benefit through our relationship with him who IS worthy.

  2. Revelation 5
    2 I saw a powerful angel calling out in a loud voice, “Who deserves to open the scroll and break the seals on it?”

    5b The Lion from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has won the victory. He can open the scroll and the seven seals on it.”

    9 Then they sang a new song,
    “You deserve to take the scroll and open the seals on it,
    because you were slaughtered.
    You bought people with your blood to be God’s own.
    They are from every tribe, language, people, and nation.
