Jesus and His clothing

One night of bitter cold and pitiless storm, a mother was out in the wilds with her child in her arms. Unable to carry her precious burden and find a shelter, she took off her own outer clothing and wrapping it about her little one she laid him in a cleft of the rock, and hastened on, hoping to find help. Next morning some shepherds heard the cry of a child, and found the babe safe and warm in the rock’s cleft. Then, not far away in the snow, they discovered the mother – dead. She had stripped off her own garments and died in the cold – to save her child.
Did not Jesus do the same? He took off His clothing and hung naked on His cross – that we may stand in the final judgment arrayed in His spotless robe of righteousness.
