Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Revelation 1:13

_ _ His glorified form as man could be recognized by John, who had seen it at the Transfiguration.

_ _ in the midst — implying Christ’s continual presence and ceaseless activity in the midst of His people on earth. In Revelation 4:1-3, when He appears in heaven, His insignia undergo a corresponding change yet even there the rainbow reminds us of His everlasting covenant with them.

_ _ seven — omitted in two of the oldest manuscripts, but supported by one.

_ _ Son of man — The form which John had seen enduring the agony of Gethsemane, and the shame and anguish of Calvary, he now sees glorified. His glory (as Son of man, not merely Son of God) is the result of His humiliation as Son of man.

_ _ down to the foot — a mark of high rank. The garment and girdle seem to be emblems of His priesthood. Compare Exodus 28:2, Exodus 28:4, Exodus 28:31; Septuagint. Aaron’s robe and girdle were “for glory and beauty,” and combined the insignia of royalty and priesthood, the characteristics of Christ’s antitypical priesthood “after the order of Melchisedec.” His being in the midst of the candlesticks (only seen in the temple), shows that it is as a king-priest He is so attired. This priesthood He has exercised ever since His ascension; and, therefore He here wears its emblems. As Aaron wore these insignia when He came forth from the sanctuary to bless the people (Leviticus 16:4, Leviticus 16:23, Leviticus 16:24, the chetoneth, or holy linen coat), so when Christ shall come again, He shall appear in the similar attire of “beauty and glory” (Isaiah 4:2, Margin). The angels are attired somewhat like their Lord (Revelation 15:6). The ordinary girding for one actively engaged, was at the loins; but Josephus [Antiquities,3.7.2], expressly tells us that the Levitical priests were girt higher up, about the breasts or paps, appropriate to calm, majestic movement. The girdle bracing the frame together, symbolizes collected powers. Righteousness and faithfulness are Christ’s girdle. The high priest’s girdle was only interwoven with gold, but Christ’s is all of gold; the antitype exceeds the type.
