The Lion of the Tribe of Judah.

The announcement is to the following effect: “behold, the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof”. This news of the victory of the Lion of Judah and Root of David is obviously the Easter message of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, in which it has been revealed at a specific time and place in earthly sphere that God Himself has closed the gap between himself and the creatures in the person of this Jewish man, and that He has exalted this Jewish man to participation in His Lordship over all creation.  KBCD III/3 p.470
