Root And Offspring Of David

I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. Revelation 22:16 
 
Jesus used this name for Himself in the closing verses of the final chapter of the last book of the Bible. It’s as if He used His last opportunity to tell the world who He is and what His life and ministry are all about.
 
Notice the dual focus of this name-the Root of David and the Offspring of David. It summarizes His existence as the God-man, the One who is both fully human and fully divine.
 
Because Jesus is the divine Son, who served as the agent of creation, He is David’s creator, or Root. But because he came to earth in human form, He is also David’s descendant, or Offspring-the Messiah from the line of David, who reigns over the spiritual kingdom that He came to establish. Thus, Jesus is both superior to David and the rightful heir to his throne.
