In the Bible, Jesus is often referred to as the “Lamb of God”.  The banner this lamb is holding states:  “Ecce Agnes Dei”, which is Latin for “Glory to God in the Highest”.   Below the Lamb are seven seals, which are referred to in Revelation 5 and 6.  The Bible verse that most relates to this picture is Revelation 5:1:

Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals.
