Rev. 4:6   And before the throne, (the Scriptures), there was a sea of glass like unto crystal (full of prophecies): and in the midst of the throne, (the Scriptures), and round about the throne, (the Scriptures), were four beasts, (the Gospels), full of eyes before (preaching the future) and behind, (eye witness records of the past).

7And the first beast, (Mark), was like a lion, and the second beast, (Luke), like a calf, and the third beast, (Matthew), had a face as a man, and the fourth beast, (John), was like a flying eagle.

 8And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him, (one for each of the 24 Elders whom they, themselves, spoke for); and they were full of eyes within, (the gospel of what people had passed down about 32 AD): and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come.

 9And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, (Almighty Reality), who liveth for ever and ever,

 10The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, (Almighty Reality), and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,

 11Thou art worthy, O Lord, (Almighty Reality), to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created, [Colossians 1:16].


(link explaining the 24 elders)

The drama described in Revelation 4 and Revelation 5 refers to twenty-four elders, who sit upon twenty-four seats.
The twenty-four seats, when symbolized as the canonized 24 books of the Old Testament, complement the concept that the four Gospels are also implied here.
Aaron had four sons, but only two lived long enough to have children. From this initial stock, 8 were chosen from the son and 6 from form the other, to be those priest who would read the daily Torah, as he would sit at the congregation, one priest following after the next.
