If part of crucifixion was nakedness why then were soldiers gambling for Jesus' garments at the foot of the cross? Would he not have been naked from the scourging?

I've heard this preached many, many times.

Like prisoners today, when Jesus was stripped before being scourged, He was given alternate clothes. The clothes the soldiers were gambling for were Jesus' clothes. The ones Jesus wore after that were still the property of the soldiers.

Matthew 27:31 and Mark 15:20 specifically note that, after Jesus was scourged, His own clothes were once again placed on Him. His clothing would have been fully and finally removed at Calvary immediately prior to His being nailed to the cross, after which the soldiers cast lots to divide His garments among them, and for possession of His tunic (Matthew 27:35; Mark 15:24; Luke 23:34; John 19:23-24).
