From Exalted to Cast Down

Lesson 2 for April 2-8

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.

People often wonder: Did God make the Devil? Where did Evil come from? How did all this mess begin? This week’s discussion will explore a little of the “mystery of iniquity.” And we will consider how the scriptures contrast the character of the Evil One with the character of Almighty God.
