Don't Put on Two Tunics

Jesus sends out the apostles to preach (Mark 6).  He tells them not to take money.  Just a staff and the sandals on their feet.  "Don't put on two tunics."  Just the one. 

There is only one robe of righteousness.  Paul tells us to "put on" Christ (Galatians 3).  Yeah, yeah, I know -- Jesus really was telling them not to take a change of clothes but only to take what they had on their backs.  But still ... don't you suppose it might have a dual meaning?
