Jesus is described twice in Revelation as the “root of David” (5:5; 22:16).  “Son of David” or “Seed of David” makes sense; Jesus comes from the Davidic line.  But Jesus is not only the fruit, but the root of the Davidic house.  He is the original Anointed One before who David stood, the Lord to whom Yahweh promised a seat at His right hand.
