What is the significance of John describing Jesus as a Lamb?

Revelation 5:6 (ESV)

6 And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth.

In step with OT sacrificial laws, John the Baptist had described Jesus as “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29; cf. Isaiah 53:7). That he is now in heaven as a Lamb indicates that he has a history of saving accomplishments behind him.
