See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has tri­umphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals. Then I saw a Lamb, look­ing as if it had been slain, stand­ing in the cen­ter of the throne…” (Rev­e­la­tion 5:5–6)

Jesus is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, but he is also the Lamb of God. (See “The Lion of Judah Series: The Lion and The Lamb”).

Jesus is omnipo­tently pow­er­ful (Psalm 147:5), yet he is also gen­tle as a Lamb (Matthew 11:29). He is infi­nitely strong (Psalm 62:11–12), yet his love reaches to the heav­ens (Psalm 36:5). Jesus is full of jus­tice (Psalm 36:6) but also grace and truth (John 1:17). In this draw­ing, I wanted to cap­ture the majesty, power and strength of the Lion of Judah as well as his gen­tle­ness, love and grace. In my own life, I know Jesus to be full of these attributes.
