the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David”  Revelation 5:5

Jesus is from the Tribe of Judah & also King David

(“For it is evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake.” Heb. 7:14 ) . His earthly father was descended from David  (“The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham.” Matt. 1:1-16 ) and His mother was descended from David  (“the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary" Luke 1:27 )


Judah is one of the sons of Jacob which God changed his name to Israel (Gen. 32:28), who had 12 sons which were called the 12 tribes of Israel.
