Mark 14:51 And there followed him a certain young man, having a linen cloth cast about his naked body; and the young men laid hold on him: 52 And he left the linen cloth, and fled from them naked. (KJV) If this is the incorrect place for this topic, I appologize. I have been studying this passage for a few days now and am haveing a hard time understanding the proper interpretation and applicaition (other than don't run around Buck Naked ). It seems that the only information that I can come up with is the general acceptance that the young man is Mark, the writer of the this gospel. What causes my struggle is that for years I have read right over this and this last week I realized it was there for the first time. It simply seems to me to be out of place in the context of the arrest of Christ. Any thoughts or insights would be greatly appreciated.
