      Hello Dan,

      Everything posted earlier below has some connection to saying 37.
      However, what is posted below does not resolve everything in the
      saying. For instance how does disrobing enable a person to see the
      son of the living one? Of course, if the garment is over your eyes
      and you take it off then that would allow you to see. 2 Corinthians
      3:14-18 mentions the veil that precludes a person from "seeing".

      The baptismal turn described by Cyril of Jerusalem mentions
      everything posted below and more. According to Cyril, once a person
      turned they could "see" the prophecies concerning the Son of God in
      the OT. As you mention below they physically disrobed and after the
      ceremony received a white robe. However the important aspect of the
      baptismal turn was that a person had turned from darkness to light
      and now could see the prophecies concerning the Son of God. The veil
      was removed.
