Why just a fuller?

Post by Giuseppe » Fri Oct 25, 2019 11:12 pm

It seems that there is some connection between the following two passages:

And being in anguish, he prayed more earnestly, and his sweat was like drops of blood falling to the ground.

(Luke 22:44)

And his raiment became shining, exceeding white as snow; so as no fuller on earth can white them

(Mark 9:3)

Why a fuller?

Just as he was speaking, Judas, one of the Twelve, appeared. With him was a crowd armed with swords and clubs, sent from the chief priests, the teachers of the law, and the elders.

(Mark 14:43)
Nihil enim in speciem fallacius est quam prava religio. -Liv. xxxix. 16.
