Garments of Splendor

Lesson 8 for May 14-20

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 Scriptural Pursuit discussion draws lessons for our day from the writings of prophet Isaiah. Repeatedly, Isaiah urged the people of his day to put on the glorious garments of righteousness and to accept God’s salvation. The prophet himself testifies to this experience: “my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of righteousness” (Isaiah 61:10). God offers His garments to
you. Watch this week’s discussion to learn how you may receive this free garment.
