Metaphysical meaning of vesture (mbd)
Meta. The "vesture" or "coat" (tunic, margin) of Jesus (John 19:24) that was "without seam, woven from the top throughout," symbolizes the consciousness of unity, which is the inner conviction of all things; without it even error could not retain a semblance of permanency. Hence in the final relinquishment of the carnal thought realm one lets go the belief that it has a diversity of causes or elements, and one soldier gets the vestment, which is an admission of the one Cause, the one unbroken life, running through all manifestation. The four soldiers who received Jesus' outer garments represent the powers of the four elements--earth, air, fire, and water.
