What do the colors represent on a priest robe serving God’s temple please?

Hello Maelene. Thank you for your very good question. After doing some research, I discovered that the ephod as a whole, with its different colors and materials, typifies Christ in His high priestly ministry. Christ, the High Priest bears His people upon His shoulders, the place of strength and seat of power. The shoulders also speak of carrying a burden, Christ, the High Priest carries the whole burden alone. The ephod may represent that part of our relationship with Jesus through which we show forth the virtues of our Mashiach. It contained threads of gold, blue, purple, red, and white. These colors and materials represent the various and glorious characteristics of our Lord and are imparted and imputed to us when we are made children of God. They are the same colors that were in the door to the outer court, the door to the sanctuary, and the veil and represent Jesus as He is pictured in the four gospels. The gold implies his divinity. Gold is fitting for a king to and Jesus is our King. Purple means royalty, red was Jesus’ shed blood, and white, the sinless-less of Jesus.

hello, i were so enthused to read your introduction and the meaning of the significance of colors. it was very helpful to me.
the reading of them was very clear and understanding with the reference of biblical scripture. i would like to receive more biblical input on how to teach or represent this information to my class of students.thank you very much.
