The sections in Revelation 5

Revelation 5:1–14 (ESV)

1 Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals.

The chapter has three sections:

  1. God the Creator presenting the scroll (Revelation 1:1–5:14)

  2. The Lamb taking the scroll (Revelation 5:6–7)

  3. The worshipful response of all creatures to the Lamb taking the scroll (Revelation 5:8–14)
