Lesson Review – Revelation 5 – Worthy is the Lamb


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Revelation 5. This is lesson 77 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 155 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 77 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Jesus not only saves us from God’s wrath, but he has also “ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.” (Revelation 5:9)

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

The apostle John had a vision of Heaven and in it he saw Jesus, in all his authority, being worshiped and honored.

Questions for Discussion

From today’s lesson, what were some of the things that John saw in his vision of heaven?
A throne, Angels, a scroll, 24 elders, “four living creatures,” the Lion/Lamb (Jesus), harp, bowl, “thousands of thousands” of people from every tribe and nation. (The point of this question is to help paint the picture of how amazing the scene at the throne of God.)

What some words were used to describe Jesus?
Lion (of the tribe of Judah) – Pointing to the fulfillment of God’s promise to Judah through Jacob.
Lamb – Pointing towards Jesus’ death in our place and for our sins.
Root (of David) – Pointing to his role as king.

How many people were in the vision and where were they all from?
There were “thousands of thousands” from every “every tribe and language and people and nation.” (What a great reminder of God’s care for all the nations and a call for us to take the gospel to the ends of the earth.)

Praying together – Take time to pray with your child, asking that God would help you and your child to meditate on the beauty of this passage and what it shows us about Jesus and his power and rule!
