Jesus in the Book of Revelation – Article

Jesus Revelations

The entire book of Revelation is couched in symbolism, visions and allegories. While we are used to reading about Jesus in a redemptive light, as the Son of God and the Messiah in most other books of the Bible, Revelation is unique in that it gives us a very rich description of Jesus’ appearance, His royal role in Heaven, the actions that He takes to bring about the end of the world and most of all constantly refers to Jesus as the Lamb. I have attempted to highlight these verses from Revelation that depicts our LORD OF LORDS and KING OF KINGS, the Alpha and Omega, the Lamb, the Son of the Almighty God, Jesus in all His glory

Alpha and Omega / the first and the last / beginning and the end / which is, which was and which is to come/ which was dead and is alive

Revelation 1:4,8,11,17-18
4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be to you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne;
8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, said the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.
11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What you see, write in a book, and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia; to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.
17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand on me, saying to me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:
18 I am he that lives, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for ever more, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.
Revelation 2:8
8 And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things said the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
