The silkworm and Jonny E.

I have had an afternoon of reading Jonathan Edwards and have especially enjoyed the sections from Images of Divine Things (1728).

#35. The silkworm is a remarkable type of Christ, which, when it dies, yields us that of which we make such glorious clothing. Christ became a worm for our sakes, and by his death finished that righteousness with which believers are clothed, and thereby procured that we should be clothed with robes of glory...
