The Lion of Judah
Judah, a son of Jacob and brother to Joseph, was called a “lion’s cub” during his father’s final blessing in Genesis 49. Go behind the scenes with us and take a look at some exciting new artwork featuring the Lion of Judah.
Judah is often seen as a forerunner of Christ—the true Lion of Judah—Who would, centuries later, sacrifice Himself for the sins of the world.
In the image below, Judah is seen standing near his father Jacob and listening to the prophetic word being spoken over his life. In this scene, we see Judah surrounded by his brothers, shown from Jacob’s point of view. This helps highlight Judah, and frames him as the focus of the prophecy.
Pictured below is snapshot from the episode of a lion holding wild animals at bay in the wilderness, symbolizing the way the Lion of Judah would fight and overcome His enemies. The scene utilizes the "vision style" of animation that iBIBLE episodes use to set apart dreams and visions. In Revelation 5:5, Jesus is called the Lion Who comes from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David. John recounts his vision, saying:
And one of the elders said to me, “Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals.” —Revelation 5:5
Watch how the lion changes into the form of Judah holding the scepter and the ruler’s staff. This foreshadows Christ and His coming rule. The lineage of Christ, outlined in Matthew 1, shows the connection of Christ to Judah’s tribe and fulfills the prophecy spoken by Jacob.
