Throughout the Gospels, Christ used many allegories and metaphors to describe and distinguish His people from the infiltrators and devils that He warned us to beware of. In virtually all these teachings, everything good and positive is associated with something white, golden, or shining bright or brassy. Everything bad, negative, and evil is associated with blackness or darkness. For example, He refers to His people allegorically as “the salt (which is white or light colored) of the earth,” “the light of the world,” and “being white for harvest.” He uses comparisons such as “sheep and goats” and “wheat and tares.” The sheep and the wheat are generally white or gold, but nevertheless, they can be difficult to distinguish from the goats and the tares (the infiltrators) which can also be light-colored. Furthermore, the kingdom of heaven was likened to leaven hidden in flour. Lastly, the angel at the tomb of Christ whose “countenance was like lightning” and “raiment white as snow” must have been white. Angels throughout scripture are indistinguishable from men, thus the men of Judea must have been white as well.
