Worth Quoting #4 (John Calvin)

The Evangelists portray the Son of God as stripped of His clothes that we may know the wealth gained for us by this nakedness, for it shall dress us in God's sight. God willed His Son to be stripped that we should appear freely, with the angels, in the garments of his righteousness and fullness of all good things, whereas formerly, foul disgrace, in torn clothes, kept us away from the approach to the heavens. ~ John Calvin, A Harmony of the Gospels: Matthew, Mark, and Luke, vol. 3, p. 194
