Revelation Chapter 5

Right of Redemption

See also ref. to 'Year of Jubilee' Lev.25:8-13. It seemed that a redeemer, in order to restore property to the former owner or relation, must be a kinsman and have the means to pay the redemptive price. Christ has earned this right. See Rev.5:1-14.

Revelation 5:1-14

Redeemer must be both a kinsman, and be able to pay the redemption price to redeem his kinsman or woman( See book of Ruth). Christ does both as in the lineage of Judah (Lion of the tribe of Judah),and as the Lamb standing as slain.
