Revelation 22:16 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
I Jesus - The Maker, the Redeemer, and Judge of all men.
Have sent mine angel - An especial messenger from heaven.
I am the root and the offspring of David - Christ is the root of David as to his Divine nature; for from that all the human race sprang, for he is the Creator of all things, and without him was nothing made which is made.

This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah the son of David, the son of Abraham:
and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him."
And again, Isaiah says, "The Root of Jesse will spring up, one who will arise to rule over the nations; in him the Gentiles will hope."
2 Peter 1:19
We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
