White


WHITE

White per se has a strong biblical connotation signifying light, purity, sanctity, innocence, and holiness. That is why artists depict angels robed in white. Like gold, it is also a divine hue. In the vision of Daniel, the Son of Man’s “clothing was white as snow” (Dan 7:9). The Israelite’s prayer included, “Cleanse me with hyssop, that I may be pure; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow” (Ps 51:9). When Jesus rose from the dead, “His appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow” (Mt 28:3) as it happened during the Transfiguration. Unlike black that absorbs light, white reflects light. So, white is symbolic of God’s love and power that permeates the world.
