One elders said to the Apostle John: "Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book and to loose the seven seals thereof."
The Lion of the tribe of Juda—The lion was the ancient symbol of the tribe of Judah. Jacob described his son as “a lion’s whelp” (Genesis 49:9); the standard of Judah in the Israeli encampment is said to have been a lion. It was the symbol of strength, courage, and sovereignty.
The Root of David: The Lion is also the representative of the royal house of David. “Christ cometh of the seed of David” (comp. Mark 12:35 with John 8:42); the prophets have described Him as THE BRANCH which would spring from the ancient stock (Isaiah 11:1; Zechariah 6:12). He who is the Branch is also the Root (comp. Isaiah 11:10); He is the one who was David’s Lord (Matthew 22:41-45), and “the true source and ground of all power” to David and David’s tribe; all who looked to Him, and not to themselves, for strength. -- Elliott's Commentary
