    “A seal on a scroll or document identified the owner and also protected its contents. Also, the number 144,000, comprising of 12 groups* of 12,000, symbolizes the ‘completeness’ of the seals, not missing a single person.” [1]

    • As with the Lion and the Lamb (ch. 5), there is a difference between what John hears (v.4) and what he sees (v.9). What is the significance of this?
    • The previous chapter ended with the words: “Who can stand?” What can I learn from this text that follows?
    • What are some features of heaven depicted in this passage? What implications for my life flow from this?

    * These groups are not the usual listing of the 12 tribes in the Old Testament, because it is a symbolic list of God’s true followers.
