A few days ago, I wrote a post and made the following statement:
According to Pastor Steve Anderson, Jesus wore pants because Deuteronomy 22:5 says that it is an abomination to God for a man to wear women’s clothing. This is what the Bible says about wearing women’s clothing:
“A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this” (Deuteronomy 22:5).
Now, my friend Darrell Pursiful at Dr. Platypus has asked the following question: “Did Jesus Wear a Dress?”
Darrell has written an excellent article in which he discusses the issue of “how men dressed in the first century.” Visit Darrel’s blog and read his article; it is an article worth reading.
