Is good that you think care the details in this scene...
John as an eagle
and Jesus be the lamb?
a lion makes sense because, as stated in the description, Jesus was known as the "King of kings" and "King of the Jews". even a lamb would make more sense than an eagle due to his sacrificial character.
well then in that case, if you use flight to symbolize Christ's mental and spiritual ascension, we can say that Jesus can be symbolized by any animal that can fly high, he could be a falcon, or an albatross, or even a buzzard, all of which can fly just as high as an eagle.
also eagles can be assholes too, for example they usually lay only two eggs, the firstborn will always kill the secondborn and the parents will absolutely do nothing to stop it. also eagles are large birds who therefore take large shits so i don't think they're all that nice smelling either, and if one of their dookies lands on your head or on your car, that would be rather rude too now would it?
it's funny how animals aren't really all as great as we make them out to be.
