Rev 5 The Lamb and the Scroll
In this episode, Rob and Vinnie explore Rev 5. It is at this point that the main story of Revelation begins to unfold. Jesus is Lamb who was slain and He is worthy to take the Scroll and to open it! What's on the Scroll? It is God's will and His plan for redeeming the creation.
