The JBSS Logo

JBSS Logo - full


JBSS’ logo captures the centrality of Jerusalem to the Christian faith and

resonates with Ezekiel 5:5, “Thus says the Lord GOD: This is Jerusalem; I

have set her in the center of the nations, with countries round about her.”

The logo is based upon the medieval woodcut map by pastor and theologian

Heinrich Bünting from 1581. It was produced in Magdeburg (Germany) as

part of his Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae (Travel book through Holy

Scripture). Jerusalem is in the center (blue) and is surrounded by Europe

(Red), Asia (green) and Africa (yellow). Such an understanding is rooted in

Scripture with Ezekiel 38:12 with Jerusalem as “the center of the world” and

is followed in Luke and Acts where the Gospel radiates from Jerusalem. The

colors in the logo approximate the same colors used by Bunting. We hope

that Jerusalem – Zion will capture the hearts and minds of pilgrims and

scholars alike in joining us on a journey in Jerusalem.
