51 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him: 52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked.
-- Mark 14:51-52 (KJV)
5 And entering into the sepulchre, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, clothed in a long white garment; and they were affrighted. 6 And he saith unto them, Be not affrighted: Ye seek Jesus of Nazareth, which was crucified: he is risen; he is not here: behold the place where they laid him.
-- Mark 16:5-6 (KJV)
I am in no way a hermeneutics veteran, and this idea may come off as new agey to certain people but I have been studying this quite a bit, and I find the clothing in both cases interesting.
Why would the young man in chapter 14, be wearing,essentially what is a shroud?
And in Chapter 16, a long white robe.
My question and suggestion is could these two ounces men not be shadow/reflection of the New Adam/Christ transfigured!?
He is going through death, and he is reborn/transfigured in the long white robe.
When the linen clothing falls away, there is no shame, for he has redeemed the sins of the world.
