The outer covering of the Tabernacle in the wilderness was of ugly non attractive badger skins all the way around except for the gate. See our scripture reference.
Isiah 53:2. the tabernacle was a picture of the savior Jesus Christ: "He hath no form or comeliness and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire him."
All except the gate: His life and inward beauty. Matthew 7:13: Enter ye in at the strait gate. John 10:1. He is the only door. There was no other way into the tabernacle but through this gate.. any one that tried to get in, or tries to get in any other way is a thief and robber.
This gate had four colors. these colors had 4 meanings and each represented one of the four gospels.
- Purple = Royalty
- Fine twined Linen=Righteousness
