The Lion and the Lamb

I drew this to accompany yesterday's "Christian Sex" entry as the "Religion and Christianity" icon. Unfortunately when you shrink it down it's impossible to tell that the lamb is in fact a lamb. It kind of looks like a dog when it's just 108 pixels high. I'll have to find something else to go as that icon.
This is a bit of a departure for me I suppose, considering I usually stick to obscure comics that pertain to be funny. But Easter is coming up and crucifixion is in the air. Also this reminds me of one of my favourite parts of the Bible; Revelation 5:5-6.
"Then one of the elders said to me, 'Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals.' Then I saw a Lamb, looking as if it had been slain, standing in the centre of the throne..." (NIV)
The verse goes on in the way Revelation does, talking about animals covered in eyes and comets smiting the world and that sort of thing. Revelation is very cinematic. It is the apocalypse after all.

    Revelation is so super dooper more interesting than I thought.. seriously, not to sound like a smarty-pants but after actually reading a very slim book & a few other resources along with revelation it's so less complex, and far more like a fantasy book with a few different plotlines - but we will actually witness it.

    So my point is, if you're ever bored, delve into it. And don't forget Daniel too, rocks my socks.

    God bless brother!
