The Coat of Different Colors

Lesson 4 for April 16-22

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 story has it all: pride, favoritism, jealousy, hatred, rejection, dysfunctional relationships, divine intervention. All in one family! Yes, the story of one family’s tangle of relationship issues. So ancient. So contemporary. Join us for our Bible discussion of “The Coat of a Different Color.”
