“And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.”
King James Version (KJV)
27:28 They put on him a scarlet robe - Such as kings and generals wore; probably an old tattered one.
Mt 27:28 They stripped him. His clothing, stripped off at the scourging, had been replaced, but was now removed to wrap him in a mock royal mantle. Scarlet or purple were the royal colors.
