4 comments on “Nakedness as a Metaphor in Scripture: The New Testament

  1. Very interesting… Another word which says what it means and means what it says without any nuance or moral-judgement. It would seem that if God was “offended” by nakedness or thought that it was wrong, He had plenty of opportunities to regulate it or even squash is, but He didn’t. God didn’t even tell Gentile believers through the Apostle Paul to quit going to the Roman baths or quit exercising at the Greek gymnasiums, rather Paul uses the metaphor of an athlete stripped for competition for how we should lay aside that which holds us back from fully-serving God.
