Abstract

While the vision of heavenly worship in Revelation chapter 4 focuses on God alone, the function and presence of Christ as the Lamb can nevertheless be discerned. As the Lamb, Christ gives shape to the nonstop and authentic kind of worship that the book enjoins upon its readers and hearers. Rather than being preliminary or incidental, the scene of worshiping God in chapter 4 by the twenty-four elders and four living creatures communicates something foundational about Christian identity
