He wore a tunic ( chitōn ), which for men normally finished slightly below the knees, not at the ankles. Among men , only the very rich wore long tunics .
The Holy Sponge is one of the Instruments of the Passion of Jesus Christ . It was dipped in vinegar (or in some translations sour wine ), most likely posca, a favorite beverage of Roman soldiers, and offered to Christ to drink from during the Crucifixion, according to Matthew 27:48, Mark 15:36, and John 19:29.
In the Roman Catholic Church, scarlet robes — symbolizing the color of the blood of Christ and the Christian martyrs — are worn by cardinals as a symbol of their willingness to defend their faith with their own blood.
The sayings of Jesus are generally considered the more accurate parts of the Gospels, so from this we can assume that Jesus really did not wear such robes. Overall a man in Jesus’s world would wear a knee-length tunic, a chiton, and a woman an ankle-length one, and if you swapped these around it was a statement.
After his resurrection, Jesus appeared to the apostles and asked them for something to eat , to prove that he was alive bodily and not just a vision. They gave him a piece of broiled fish and he ate it. (Luke 24:42-43).
Since crucifixion was excruciatingly painful, it can be seen as an act of mercy. By tasting the wine, Jesus acknowledges this small gesture of kindness. But by refusing to drink gall, the narcotic that might help to numb his pain, Jesus chose to experience the worst of human suffering.
Perhaps he was thirsty for renewed fellowship with his loving Father. Perhaps Jesus yearns for his resurrection, and his return to the Godhead in eternity, to experience again the sublime companionship of God the Father and the Holy Spirit.
Have some bread and dip it in the wine vinegar .” When she sat down with the harvesters, he offered her some roasted grain. She ate all she wanted and had some left over.

John 19:2-3 says “And the soldiers twisted together a crown of thorns and put it on his head and arrayed him in a purple robe. The color Purple was that of royalty. They came up to him, saying, ‘Hail, King of the Jews!’
The Holy Robe , believed by some to have been the seamless garment worn by Jesus Christ shortly before his crucifixion, is usually kept out of public view in a reliquary at Trier Cathedral.
People who wore purple were generally royalty because they were the only ones who could afford it. Perhaps it’s worth mentioning that on His cross, Jesus had a sign that called Him the “King of the Jews.” Thus, the association of purple with royalty is critical to our liturgical use of it during Lent .
Associating the pagan symbol of the cross to God’s word is considered sacrilegious and a great sin. Apart from the pagan ties, the cross is a religious symbol and according to the Bible , God cautioned his people against forming signs and figures with which to honor him by in 1 Corinthians 10:14.
Some men wear dresses that could be more flattering on their body type, but it’s understandable because it’s really hard to find a dress that’s made for a man’s body, you almost have to get it custom made, which is something that needs to change. Men wore skirts and dresses before pants were even invented.
Using these methods, most scholars assume a date of birth between 6 and 4 BC, and that Jesus’ preaching began around AD 27–29 and lasted one to three years . They calculate the death of Jesus as having taken place between AD 30 and 36.
