Lamb of God

Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, “Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” But no one in heaven or under the earth could open the scroll. Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the center of the throne. He came and took the scroll from the right hand of him who sat on the throne. And the four living creatures and twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb and sang a new song. “You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.” Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering ten thousand times ten thousand. In a loud voice they sang: “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”


Jesus Christ is represented here as t he Lamb of God, who died for our sins and rose again to triumph over death. Shown below the Lamb are the seven seals which he alone is worthy to open. The Lamb carries a staff with cross and pennant. The staff represents  the cross, and the white pennant  with the red cross on it represents the Body of Christ, crucified for our salvation.
