The veil of the tabernacle was rent from top to bottom when Jesus Christ gave up the Ghost. In the curtains, the fine twined linen of white depicting  the perfect man, pure and holy, had the same colors as the veil; that is, blue, purple, scarlet. The dominant color of the curtains was the white fine twined linen.


The blue speaks of Jesus Christ origin as God. He is the Father of glory, the Great "I AM that I AM". He is the LORD Jehovah, Yahweh. Blue has always been the color of heaven, the vast expanse of the firmament. No matter how many clouds may come, sooner or later, they blow over and the heaven returns to its original color of blue. Blue is the most tranquil and serene of all colors being calm and quiet in contrast to the scarlet which is the most violent color of the spectrum. These are the two most extreme colors, therefore they are never placed in juxta-position throughout the fabrics of the Tabernacle. To the eye of the beholder, the blue is so placid and peaceful. Then to behold the scarlet as the most violent, forceful color, takes time to adjust to as it is the brightest color of all. To buffer the contrast between the blue and the scarlet, God placed the purple between the two varying colors, purple being a mixture of blue and scarlet. White on the other hand has all the color components in itself denoting the full work of God.


We understand that there is a divine order of the colors, which God repeats some twenty-four times in the Book of Exodus. This is to instruct us in the Person of Jesus Christ as the Word that dwelt in flesh. The blue speaks of the divine origin of Jesus Christ as God from heaven as the LORD God Jehovah or Yahweh, the Almighty that created all things. The scarlet speaks of the flesh and blood body of Jesus Christ that was just like ours; that is, that the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us. "The Word made flesh" is the Greek "sarx-egeneto" and not "Theos en". Jesus Christ was not made God, but was God from the beginning. "Sarx" is not simply the whole man comprised of a human spirit, human soul, and human body, but denotes the full human nature of man that was fallen. By the Word being made flesh, we understand that Jesus Christ as the Word or God was made flesh; that is, took on a permanent abode or dwelling in a fully human being consisting of a human spirit, rational soul, and human body of flesh and blood with a fallen human nature. Jesus did not come as a perfect Adam, but an Adam just like us in nature being tempted in all points like us but without sin, being made perfect by the things which he suffered.


The purple speaks of the KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS, who would rule upon the throne of David. The white speaks of the perfect sinless man, Jesus Christ, the spotless Lamb of God that taketh away the sin of the world. This is the God-man, the Word that was made flesh in order to give his life a ransom for many. The Son of God is God in Spirit as the Word or Logos depicted in the color blue. The human body of flesh and blood that housed permanently the Word was depicted by the color scarlet as the blood of the worm. The purple is a mixture of blue and scarlet reminding us that Jesus Christ is the God-man that would bring fallen mankind back to God, God in Christ reconciling the world back to himself.


The white fine twined linen curtains are called the tabernacle, which typify Jesus Christ as the perfect man, the spotless Lamb of God who overcame sin in his body being tempted in all points like us. The covering of the tabernacle called the tent is the eleven goats' hair curtains which typifies sin, since the goat is the sin offering. The goat as an offering speaks of Jesus Christ as being made sin who knew so sin, being made a curse for us. "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." (2 Corinthians 5:21). "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree." (Galatians 3:13). Jesus Christ became sin who knew so sin as the propitiation for sin, condemning sin in the flesh. Jesus became the "offering for sin", not for himself, but for our sins as He was turned into curse bearing the judgment of God on our behalf. The tabernacle of Jesus' flesh and blood was a worldly tabernacle with divine service; thus, God manifested in the flesh dwelling among us who carried our sins as depicted in the eleven goats' hair curtains.


Therefore, we can discern in the colors the divine origin of Jesus Christ as the Word of God as shown in the color blue. We can also discern the man Christ Jesus as having a human nature as a man of spirit, soul, and body by the color scarlet. The purple being a mixture of blue and scarlet allows us to discern the God-man as the supreme sacrifice that will bring mankind back to God Himself through the God-man as our propitiation for sin. The color blue never touched the color scarlet and the color scarlet never touched the blue which afforded us the knowledge that no man has ever seen God and lived, but the only begotten Son of God who is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. (John 1:18).
