Garments of Grace: Clothing Imagery in the Bible
This quarter’s discussions focus on biblical symbolism of a certain kind: clothing imagery. We will consider the garments that people in the Bible wore and what that clothing really meant, what truths it symbolized, what great realities it pointed to, and what lessons we can learn from it. From the fanciful adornment of Lucifer in heaven to the filthy rags of our own righteousness, from the coats of animal skins for Adam and Eve in Eden to the “garments of splendor” mentioned in Isaiah, the Bible uses clothing and clothing imagery to portray truths about sin, pride, righteousness, salvation, justification, resurrection, and eternal life in Christ.
This week’s discussion, “In the Loom of Heaven”, centers on the robe of righteousness woven in the loom of heaven. Jesus Christ is the Only Savior who offers that robe as a gift to cover your sinful life. Consequently, you appear in His presence as if you’ve never sinned.
