Now we want to consider the tabernacle's four layers of covering. The first layer was of fine linen. This was the layer of the most fine material. It was embroidered with beautiful colors: blue, purple, and scarlet 4 Color Gates of the Tabernacle Although many people know the veil between the tabernacle and the holiest place in the temple, there are 4 color gates of the tabernacle as mentioned in Exodus 26:36, 27. You need to weave blue, purple, scarlet fine twine and fine twine on the door of the tent and tie it with needle thread Even more amazing, each of the four main colors of the Tabernacle correspond to a specific Gospel. Jesus is portrayed as King of Kings most often in Matthew's gospel. The Lion corresponds to it because the Lion is the King of beasts as Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords These judgments were fulfilled by four Gentile kingdoms dominating Israel during the 2,520 years of their national punishment.] (Symbolic Numbers, The Herald of Christ's Kingdom, Nov./Dec. 2004) The colours embroidered on the white linen of the vail are the same here as for the entrance into th
The fourth and inner most was linen. It was the only covering that could be seen from inside the tabernacle. It was embroidered in blue, purple, and scarlet with the design of cherubim. There were 10 individual curtains, each 28 cubits long and 4 cubits wide The Tabernacle itself had four coverings, the first was linen, the second was goats hair, the third was ram's skin dyed red, and the fourth was badger skins. The badger skin covering was the only covering which was seen on the outside which was that dull and unattractive skin. The First Covering (A Curtain Scarlet - is the color ob blood and speaks of Christ's sacrifice (1 Peter 1:19-20; Acts 2:23 & 4:38). The Pillars of the Gate There were four pillars of the gate to uphold, that which represented Christ Jesus - as the Door, the Way to God - and there are four Gospels setting forth Christ in His four-fold character ————— Tuesday's Video Topical Subject ————— — The Four coverings of the Tabernacle in the wilderness — —(The Key to Understanding the Whole of the Tabernacle..
Thus, the color of Dan would be blue because a sapphire is blue. The four standards, therefore, were composed of the colors of the three tribes of each triad. The tradition continues that each of the four standards depicted a living being. Judah's animal was a lion, Reuben's a man, Ephraim's an ox and Dan's an eagle Even more amazing, each of the four main colors of the Tabernacle correspond to a specific Gospel. Jesus is portrayed as King of Kings most often in Matthew's gospel. The Lion corresponds to it because the Lion is the King of beasts as Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The color of royalty is purple so it is the color of this. The hangings and coverings of the tabernacle were cloaked in gold, blue, purple, scarlet, and white; major colors representing spiritual themes. The white linen fence surrounding the sacred area points to God's holiness. At the east end stood the 30 foot gate embroidered in blue, purple, and scarlet The Tabernacle was covered by a large white linen cloth composed of ten curtains interwoven with figures of cherubim, in blue, purple, and scarlet ( Exodus 26:1, 36:8-13 ). Each curtain was 28 cubits x 4 cubits, making a total of 28 cubits across and 40 cubits from front to back. The ten curtains were sewn into two sets 28 x 20 and these two.
The curtains of the Gate leading to the Outer Court of the Tabernacle was of blue, purple, scarlet, and fine twined linen. It was wrought with needlework and was of the same quality as the hangings for the door of the holy place. The four colours of the gate curtains leading to the tabernacle tell us more about Jesu together in the scriptures to give us a portrait of various things. The most common mixtures are of gold, blue, purple, scarlet and white. Some things that contain these mixtures are the garments of the high priest, the covering of the tabernacle, the veil of the tabernacle and temple The symbolism of the number four is prominent in the imagery above, not only in the four pillars holding the Tabernacle's veil, but also in the four colors of the Tabernacle shown in the veil. The four colors are blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen . Blue stood for the deity, meaning the court was a place of God. Purple, a difficult and expensive dye to produce, was a symbol of royalty. Red symbolized blood, the color of sacrifice. White meant holiness Moreover, you shall make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen and blue and purple and scarlet yarns; you shall make them with cherubim skillfully worked into them. (Exodus 26:1) And you shall make a veil of blue and purple and scarlet yarns and fine twined linen. It shall be made with cherubim skillfully worked into it
Lesson 7 .The Tabernacle Outlay, Materials, Colours, Gates & Curtains The instruction and building date was around 1441 BC The Tabernacle was at the exact centre of the Jewish camp life and was right among them! God was come to dwell with man to show man the way back to Himself A. The gate was a hanging of fine twined linen that was of needlework of four colors. The four colors stand for the four Gospels. 1. Purple - Matthew - royalty: Matt 1:21-23; 2:2 God with us. King of the Jews. Rev 19:16 King of Kings. Phillip 2:9-11 All bow to Jesus. Heb 8:1 sitting with God. 2
The significance of these colors was taught to us by Brad Scott of Wildbranch Ministries These three colors- blue, purple, scarlet - are used in several articles in the tabernacle: the tabernacle curtain (Ex 26:1), the veil before the Holy of Holies (Ex 26:31),the ephod of the High Priest (Ex 28:6), the breastplate (Ex 28:15) and the. Four seven-strand threads were twisted together to make a 28-strand thread. From this the tunic was woven. The four colors contained in the doors of the tabernacle were also found woven into the high priest's garments.

FOUR LAYERS The roof of the tabernacle consisted of four layers of material. The first covering placed over the tabernacle, and, therefore, the only one which would be visible from the inside, was a curtain of fine twined linen, embroidered with blue and purple and scarlet color. It covered th THE TABERNACLE (Exo 26:1-3) Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen [Heb: bleached stuff, i.e. white], and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims [a kind of angels] of cunning work shalt thou make them
The tabernacle in context. The last major segment of Exodus concerns the presence of God with his people. Chapters 25-31 and 35-40 describe the instructions for the tabernacle and its construction. All aspects of the dwelling and its furnishings were defined with specific detail regarding dimensions, shape, and color God commanded Moses to use four different colors in the construction of the Desert Tabernacle, and King Solomon repeated them in building the Jerusalem Temple. The number four symoblized the earth (four cardinal directions, four seasons, etc.), and each color was a different power in creation: Red (scarlet) signified fir The tents belonging to the common man were probably a dreary black and brownish color, set in contrast with the sandy / rocky desert-like wilderness around them. In the center of the camp, you would have seen the Fence of the Tabernacle's Outer Court, measuring 200 feet long, 100 feet wide, and 10 feet high; it was truly an awesome spectacle. The more detailed description of a tabernacle, located in Exodus chapters 25-27 and Exodus chapters 35-40, refers to an inner shrine (the most holy place) housing the ark and an outer chamber (holy place), with a six-branch seven-lamp menorah (lampstand), table for showbread, and altar of incense. An enclosure containing the sacrificial altar and bronze laver for the priests to wash. This gate of the court, with its four pillars and four colors, wonderfully symbolizes CHRIST, as revealed and presented to us, at the door into the New Testament in the four Gospels. We mention these colors in the order in which they symbolize the four characters of JESUS CHRIST, as revealed in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
Introduction We saw in the previous post that the tabernacle was split into three different areas - the outer court, the holy place and the holy of holies. The three areas, as we saw speak of different aspects of salvation in Christ. They also point to three different dispensations within the plan of God. Thi For the entrance to the courtyard, provide a curtain twenty cubits long, of blue, purple and scarlet yarn and finely twisted linen - the work of an embroiderer - with four posts and four bases.

Tabernacle. The center place of Israel's worship activities during the wanderings and until the building of the temple in Solomon's day. The tabernacle was in fact a portable temple. It was an inner tent, the area available for sacred purposes ( Ex. 26:7; 36:14 ). It was oblong, 30 cubits in length and 10 in breadth and height Margaret Barker Beyond the Veil of the Temple.

The (Inner) Court: This is also known as the court of the priests in Herod's temple.Surrounded by a barrier in the case of both the tabernacle and the later temple, this enclosure represents the sanctified community of believers on earth who have. The parts of the tabernacle and its pieces of furniture were a picture of Jesus Christ and His plan for the redemption of sinners. There were three veils that separated sinful men from a holy God. The first veil was the eastern gate which opened into the courtyard. Those who came to sacrfice could pass through this veil or gate (Ex. 40:33)
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 For Philo the tabernacle was a representation of the universe, the tent signifying the spiritual world, the court the material. Moreover, the four colors signified the four world elements, the lamp with its seven lights the seven planets and the twelve loaves of bread the twelve signs of the Zodiac and the twelve months of the year. 13 B.

God commanded that Moses build the Tabernacle. God gave Moses many instructions in how to build the Tabernacle. The intricate details that God gave to Moses in how to build this portable tent sanctuary are revealed in Exodus chapters 25-31 and 35-40. The word Tabernacle occurs 328 times in the King James version of the Bible
What colors were used in the Tabernacle? There are three main colors: Blue, purple, and scarlet. A fourth color, the pure white linen which is not readily visible, served as the foundation of every fabric. What does Blue represent in the Bible? The color blue, according to many Bible scholars, represents Heaven. Blue is the color of the sky and. The Tabernacle, made of gold boards, was hung inside and out with curtains of a smoky violet color, and was overlaid with a goat's hair tent the color of a dark cloud. The Tabernacle curtains are prescribed in Exodus 26. The warp was white linen, while the woof was blue and purple and scarlet (wool) All the vessels of the Tabernacle in the court, and all the pins of the Court were to be made of brass (v. 19). The hangings of the Court in general were of fine twined linen, and as the hanging of the door has its colors particularly specified, the inference seems clear, that the hangings generally were colorless, white A sanctuary lamp, chancel lamp, altar lamp, everlasting light, or eternal flame is a light that shines before the altar of sanctuaries in many Jewish and Christian places of worship.

The tabernacle in the wilderness, and plan of the encampment. Print shows a temporary tabernacle building surrounded by a curtained wall in a large clearing with tents comprising the First Division Camp of Judah on the east side, the Second Division Camp of Reuben on the south side, the Third Division Camp of Ephraim on the west side, and the Fourth Division Camp of Dan on the north side The wall did, however, have a gate (door) of access. And there was only one. The one gate was made from cloth of four colors: white, blue, scarlet red and purple. It hung on four pillars forming three equal openings to the one door (Exodus 27:16). The wall was not meant to keep people away from God but to show that the approach to God is single The Tabernacle Tent: Set in the middle of a larger courtyard, the tent of the tabernacle was divided into two parts divided by a curtain. The first room, called the Holy Place, contained the lampstand and the table and consecrated bread.

Finally a court (ḥaẓer) formed in a certain measure a part of the Tabernacle. This court was 100 cubits long and 50 cubits broad (ib. xxvii. 9-13), and, since the Tabernacle was placed in its western part, it was rightly called a forecourt.
