From seeing God to seeing a scroll in His hand

Revelation Bible Background

12.14.2016 – New Testament: Rev 5.1

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 5 on December 14, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

Revelation 4 shows John witnessing the throne of God and all that surrounds His throne. Then something else caught John’s attention,

And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals (Revelation 5.1). 

This must have happened in such a way that John would notice the scroll, because you will see what an important part the scroll plays in the Revelation of Jesus to John.

Would you not be curious as to what the scroll said? John was, and wept when he learned that the scroll was sealed and no one worthy was found to open it, at least at first.
