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!"
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
