root ( ἡ ῥίζα Δαυείδ , hē rhı́za Daueı́d , Revelation 5:5 ; Revelation 22:16 ): Root here means stock, family, descendant, hence, "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.
