Further to my question, Nudity in the bible - Genesis 2 and 3, I have the following quote which I would like clarified.
Adam and Eve felt shame when they were naked in the Garden of Eden yet, there are other parts of the Old Testiment which seem to highlight that nudity does not necessarily cause shame.
1 Samuel 19:20-24 Saul had sent a group of messengers to capture David. The "Spirit of God" descended on the messengers, and they started to prophesise (Verse 20). Saul sent a second and third group of messengers, both with the same result (Verse 21). Finally Saul went himself and the Spirit descended upon him as well (Verses 22 & 23). Verse 24 states:
1 Samuel 19:24 - And he stripped off his clothes also, and prophesied before Samuel in like manner, and lay down naked all that day and all that night...." (KJV).
The nudity of Saul and his messengers while prophesising is the first of many similar instances in the Bible.
Why were Saul and the prophets not ashamed when nudity was a source of shame to Adam and Eve?
