Root of David

This term occurs in Revelation 5:5 and 22:16 in reference to Jesus Christ.

Root here means stock, family, descendant; so "the Root of David" is that which descended from David, not that from which David descended. Jesus Christ in His human nature and family connections was a descendant of David, a member of his family.
