The Emblem of Jerusalem: The Lion of Judah

The Hebrew word is Jerusalem

Selections from the Book

The Lion of Judah in Scripture

The Lion of Judah, a title adapted from Revelation 5:5, is one of the titles for Jesus. The verses in this book cover his many titles. The name Jesus is from the Greek translation of the Hebrew name Joshua (Yeshua). See for more references using these titles.

Lion of Judah

Judah’s father Jacob called him a young lion and prophesied that ‘the sceptre shall not depart from Judah until Shiloh comes’ (Genesis 49:9-10 NKJV), or ‘until he comes to whom it belongs’ (RSV), or ‘until tribute comes to him’ (NRSV, ESV). Revelation 5:5 declares that the Lion of the tribe of Judah has triumphed, announcing that Jesus, the sacrificial Lamb was also the conquering Lion.

Then one of the elders said to me, ‘Do not weep. See, 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)

Jesus/Joshua (the Lord saves)

The word Joshua/Jesus means the Lord saves, or the Lord is salvation.  That is why the angel announcing his birth said, ‘… you are to name him Joshua/Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins’ (Matthew 1:21). It is the same name as Moses’ general, Joshua, who led the Israelites into their promised land.

The earliest English translations of the Bible used the name Jesus for Joshua/Jesus of Nazareth, and the name Joshua for others with that same name. It is translated as Joshua in Luke 3:29 (Jose in KJV), Acts 7:45 and Hebrews 4:8.  So in English the name Jesus became unique and sacred for Jesus of Nazareth, the Son of God, the Saviour of the world.

Joshua (originally ‘Yehoshua’ in Hebrew) had been shortened to Yeshua in Jesus’ time, so Jesus was known as Yeshua/Joshua. That name became Iesous in Greek, Yesu in Africa and Asia, Isa in Arabic, and both Joshua and Jesus in English. The Hebrew word was translated as Joshua in English and the Greek translation of that name became both Joshua and Jesus in English.

Here are sample passages about Joshua/Jesus of Nazareth. You can respond to him as you read about him. He said, “I am with you always” (Matthew 28:20).

She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins. (Matthew 1:21)

I am

Jesus, one with God, uses God’s name given to Moses at the burning bush – ‘I am’ (Exodus 3:14). The verses here expound many facets of who Jesus is in himself.

Jesus said to them, ‘Very truly, I tell you, before Abraham was, I am.’ (John 8:58)

The Bread of life, the living bread

I am the bread of life (John 6:35, 48)

I am the living bread (John 6:51)

The Light of the world

I am the light of the world (John 8:12; 9:5)

The Door/Gate

I am the door/I am the gate (John 10:7, 9; door NKJV; gate NRSV)

The Good Shepherd

I am the good shepherd (John 10:11, 14)

… a ruler who is to shepherd my people Israel (Matthew 2:6; see Ezekiel 34)

The Resurrection, the Life

I am the resurrection and the life (John 11:25)

The way, the truth, the life

I am the way, and the truth, and the life (John 14:6)

The True Vine

I am the true vine (John 15:1)

I am the vine, you are the branches (John 15:5)

The Alpha and the Omega,

The first and the last,

The beginning and the end

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. (Revelation 22:13; see Revelation 1:8, 11; 22:13).

The root and the descendant of David,

The bright morning star

I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star

(Revelation 22:16; see Revelation 5:5; see Numbers 24:17)

I AM  For children & youth – a way to remember these I AM statements1 – bun:  I am the bread of life

2 – shoe: I am the way, the truth, and the life

3 – tree: I am the good shepherd (in the tree’s shade)

4 – door: I am the door

5 – hive: I am the resurrection and the life (if you sit on it)

6 – sticks: I am the light of the world (sticks on fire for light)

7 – heaven: I am the Alpha and the Omega … beginning and the end

8 – gate: I am the first and the last (going through a gate)

9 – vine: I am the true vine

10 – hen: I am the bright morning star (hen/rooster greets morning)

Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book.  But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name.

(John 20:30-31)
