In the apostle John's first vision of heaven, one of the twenty four elders introduces Jesus as:
"The Lion from the tribe of Judah" and "the Root of David"
Yet the apostle depicts "The Lion" as "a Lamb as if slain!" (Rev 5:5-6)
Only the "Lamb" was worthy and could open the scroll with the seven seals, because He:
1. Paid the judicial penalty of sin for all
2. Appeased the wrath of His Father
In accomplishing the impossible task set by His Father, Jesus was victorious over death (Acts 2:24)
