Clothes are part of our daily lives. For some people they are simply a functional reality of life. However, for most of us, at least subconsciously the way we dress is an expression of our identity. Consider some of the things we say: "he dresses for success," "she always makes a fashion statement," "he is wearing a power tie," "she was dressed to the nines." A person is a fraud if "he is caught with his pants down." Maybe this is what caused Mark Twain to say, "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society." There are many other clothing-related idioms in the English language. We certainly do not want to "be a stuffed shirt," "get hot under the collar" or "wear our feelings on our sleeves."
In the Bible, robes and clothing carry deep spiritual meaning. This series explores significant robes found throughout the Bible, from Adam and Eve’s loincloths of shame to the saints’ white robes in heaven.
