Jesus, God and Santa Claus, Why is Your clothing Red, and your attire like that ? -Isaiah 63


 When did Jesus become Santa Claus ? What is the symbolism ?  Why does this character come dressed in Red on Dec 24th to Judge if you have been good or bad ? See Isaiah 63.... "Who is this coming from Edom, with soiled garments, from Bozrah, this one Who was stately in His apparel, girded with the greatness of His strength? "I speak with Righteousness, great to Save." Why is Your clothing Red ?"

Who then is this man in Red ? What are these strange symbols we see ? What is the significance of Dec 24th ? Is he conceived on 24th kislev, the seed of the Ashera (womb) born 9 months later on Yom Simchateinu in a booth (Sukkah), a manger, a granary ?



" Pay attention now, from this day and before-from the 24th day of the ninth month [Kislev]- from the day that the Temple of the Lord was founded, pay attention !

The Seed is still in the Granary (womb), and the grapevines, the fig trees, the pomegranate trees, and the olive trees have not yet borne -from this day I will bless." And the word of the Lord came a second time on the twenty-fourth of the month, saying: I am shaking up the heaven and the earth.... On that day, says the Lord of Hosts, I will take you, My servant; says the Lord, and I will make you as a signet; for I have chosen you, says the Lord of Hosts. (Haggai 2:18-19)

"Who is this coming from Edom, with soiled garments, from Bozrah, this one who was stately in His apparel, girded with the greatness of His strength? "I am speaking of the most righteous Yeshua. Why is your clothing red ? Why are your garments red?’ אֲנִי מְדַבֵּר צדיקים רַב ישִׁוֹעַ: ..... The kind acts of the Lord I will mention, the praises of the Lord, according to all that the Lord bestowed upon us, and much good to the house of Israel, which He bestowed upon them according to His mercies and according to His many kind acts... And He became their Savior."


...the Angel of His presence saved them; with His Love and with His pity He redeemed them, and He bore them, and He carried them all the days of old. But they rebelled and grieved His Holy Spirit, and He was turned to be their enemy; He fought with them.

And His people remembered the days of old, [the days of] Moses; where is he who drew them up from the sea, [like] a shepherd His flock; where is he who placed within them His Holy Spirit? He led at Moses' right the arm of His glory, splitting the water before them to make for Himself an everlasting name.... For You are our Father, for Abraham did not know us, neither did Israel recognize us; You, O Lord, are our Father; our redeemer of old is your name." (Isaiah 63)


"So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in a Manger, a Granary, a Sukkah (Booth) When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. (Luke 2:16)

  2. Providing that the Red Santa is a branding idea initiated by Coca Cola... I dont know how much it make sense to look for a meaning of this in the bible...
    The 24 of december was pagan druidic festivity of the winter... so again...
    but given all the contradictions and evolution of this holiday, it is pretty cool to see how much effort was put to reconciliate it anyway with traditional texts...

  3. What?! Santa Claus is a character derived from actual person Saint Nicholas, not in any way Jesus. Yours is just a weird notion, and there is no reference in the either the old or the new testiment that could possibly be attributed to, related to or lead to Santa Claus, no matter how you twist it about.

  4. There is just the man who comes in Judgement wearing Red and covered in soot we find in Isaiah 63 and repeated in Revelation 19:13 ..... Red is the colour of Gevurrah/ Din judgement. He comes to judge whether you have been naughty or nice. But it just a coincidence. Read you Bible !

  5. That's pretty cool about 24th kislev, the conception of Jesus in the womb (Haggai 2) and his birth 9 months late during the Festival of Sukkot. this actually makes a lot of sense, and i see the collision of symbols in Isaiah 63..... i never read that before. Jesus is always painted wearing a red robe when he comes in a judgement in the Book of Revelation. At least in all the a renaissance paintings I have seen. Never made the connection with Santa wearing red.
