I’m starting something new for Fridays. In order to get more reader-participation, I’ll be posting Scriptures that may or may not be related in my mind. Just Scripture. Naked Scripture. It reminds me of something I did when I was younger, which was to “point and click” on verses and make connections. Fill in your thoughts on the Scriptures posted, please.
Today’s Naked Scripture Friday: Actual and metaphorical nakedness
Genesis 2:25 “the man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame” NIV
Genesis 3:7 “at that moment, their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame in their nakedness, so they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves” NLT
Hebrews 4:13 “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do” KJV
James 2:15-16 “If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food and one of you says to them ‘go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill’ and you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good in that?” NRS
Revelation 3:18 “I advise you to buy from me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, white garments to clothe yourself so that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed, and eye salve to annoint your eyes so that you may see.” NAS
