Gospel Thread - OT:

Tell all the skilled men to whom I have given wisdom in such matters that they are to make garments for Aaron, for his consecration, so he may serve me as priest.

Exodus 28:3 (NIV)

The garments of the High Priest foreshadow and symbolize our eventual High Priest, that is, Jesus Christ.

Gospel Thread - NT:

a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.

Matthew 26:7 (NIV)

This anointing symbolized Jesus as the Christ, that is, the Annointed One.

Gospel Thread - Psalms/Proverbs:

This passage is again perhaps a foreshadowing of Christ's lament during His persecution and his affliction on the cross.
