And you shall embroider the coat of fine linen, and you shall make the turban of fine linen…
This garment was most proper to our High Priest of the New Testament, Jesus Christ, who is by it described (Revelation 1:13), "clothed in a garment down to the feet." Noting —
1. The excellency of His person, who is "Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6), for such long white garments ever betoken peace, both within the church and without.
2. That He excelled in wisdom and counsel, being the Great Counsellor and the "Spirit of counsel and understanding resting in His breast" (Isaiah 11:2), for to such also the garments belonged (Daniel 5:7, 16).
3. The lovely and beautiful connection and conjunction of His prophetical, priestly, and princely offices; sincerely and perfectly fulfilling them and appearing before God in them as in a most costly embroidered garment consisting of many pieces and many colours fitly couched and laid together. And this garment He wore, not only on earth (as the priests did), but now after His ascension, He continues to perform the office of the High Priest for His Church, in the same embroidered garment, presenting before God the merit of His only sacrifice and making intercession to the Father for it.
(T. Taylor, D. D.)
