Mary uses Spikenard on Jesus. Judas betrayal. The last supper. Washing of the feet. Staying awake for the prayer. Christ’s arrest. Peter’s denial.

    The phrase “laid aside his garments” in John 13:4 means that Jesus took off an outer garment. It is similar to someone removing a jacket in our day.

    • Thanks Stefanie!
      I appreciate the feedback and for you sharing your view on this. What you are saying could very well be the case.
      I still see it differently. Here’s what I’m seeing.
      The Greek word translated as garments is ‘himation’, which in Greek can mean both outer and inner garment, not just outer alone.
      The setting of this action appears to be indoors after they had settled in. At this point in the evening, any outer layers like a jacket would have been likely removed.
      The word ‘himation’ in this case is plural, ‘himatia’ meaning not just a single garment or layer. Multiple garments or layers.
      Jesus also wrapped himself with a towel after removing the garments, which is not typical behavior of someone wearing clothes.
      I can’t say for sure what happened that night. As I read it though, I understand it as him laying aside his clothes for a towel. I see connections with the Fall and Adam and Eve finding themselves naked in the Garden and the atonement as a reversal of the Fall. I see connections with clothing the physical body with clothes and clothing the spirit with a physical body.

It makes sense for many schools and online learning platforms to devote their time and resources into those core courses and curriculum that are in most demand. As a result, this strategy gives them the biggest bang for their dollar and ensures a steady stream of traffic. However, Add On Education is different, and the best way to describe it is like a journey. We most importantly seek to add on to core learning additional courses, insights and perspective not found anywhere else. As such, we feel like it's like a journey to unique discoveries. To sum up, we feel what we have to offer is learning that's worth the journey.
