Deuteronomy 24:6

''Make sure that orphans and foreigners are treated fairly. And if you lend money to a widow and want to keep something of hers to guarantee that she will pay you back, don't take any of her clothes.'' Deuteronomy 24:6

Clothing was a visible expression of wealth in those days. The vast majority of people had one or two changes of clothes. The availability of clothing was nothing like looking into our closets of unused articles for something to wear. A cloak was used as a blanket at night, as blankets, quilts, and the like were non-existent luxuries for a much more developed period of time.


Forty-Eighth Day after Pentecost:
Series: Pentecost Devotional

Matthew 26:18

''Jesus told them to go to a certain man in the city and tell him, 'Our teacher says, ''My time has come! I want to eat the Passover meal with my disciples in your home.''''' Matthew 26:18

As Passover was a special celebration in the Old Testament texts, so it was a special celebration in Jesus' own day. Historians tell us that for Passover, Jerusalem's population swelled in the First Century from 200,000 to 1,000,000. There was a huge influx of Jews from throughout the Roman Empire who strove to be present in Jerusalem if at all possible. Some would make the journey in order to spend their last days in Jerusalem in order to have the opportunity to participate in the expected Messianic banquet upon the coming of Messiah.
