SCEPTRE

The sceptre is the official staff of a King, symbolic of his authority to rule. "The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, not a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be". (Gen 49:10).

Messiah sprang out of the Tribe of Judah, meaning "praiser of God". Shiloh is a personal Name for the Messiah...."unto him shall the gathering be", is a reference to the nations submitting to His rule. (Sanhedrin 98b). King David sprang out of Judah, (Isa 11:1) but the ultimate rule would be with the 'greater Son of David, who would come from the specific town of Bethlehem, Judah (Micah 5:2)

Only Messiah Yahshua possessed the credentials through his geneology to be Israel's Messiah. The overwhelming evidence of all biblical accounts points to Him alone, starting from the 1st messianic prophecy in Gen. 3:15 , to come from 'the seed of a woman'.

One who is Lion of the Tribe of Judah is substantiated throughout the whole of both Covenants from conception to His return, to take the royal sceptre and rule and reign forever and ever. (Rev 5:5)
