Zion is the ancient Hebrew name of the eastern-hill of the city of Jerusalem. It is also referred to as the City of David. I hope this answered your question.

Both MP and Eloy are correct

It's synonymous with Jerusalem.

There is an old chorus, the last line of which says "we're marching to Zion, the beautiful city of God". I always thought that the beautiful city meant Heaven but perhaps I was wrong.

Kaleo: As the Mod.s are so fond of saying, can you give us a Scripture reference? (Or do you mean in other sources?) I certainly could have missed one when I looked... the closest I got was "heavenly Jerusalem" which was _in_ heaven and will come down to earth at the end of time, but that's not a reference to the WHOLE of heaven.
---Daniel on 10/16/05


Zion is also a reference to Heaven
---Kaleo on 10/13/05


Directions are a matter of perspective! When MARIE said "eastern-hill," I can only assume she meant in relation to the center of _modern-day Jerusalem_. Elias told us it was south-west of Old Jerusalem (where the Temple Mount is; and "east" of there is the Mount of Olives). Any good map from an Israeli tourist office will show locations of Mt. Zion (the city of David) and many other ancient sites.

[Pt.2] 'Zionist' arose roughly 100yrs. ago in reference to movements for re-establishing a Jewish state in Israel. Today it might refer to anyone who very strongly supports Israel; even if they don't believe in God. Almost all Zionists would be Jews, but they certainly wouldn't have to be; unless they wanted to join some specific group that required them to be. It's mostly always been a political term.

[Pt.1] Zion(or Mt. Zion) is the old city of David; it's often used together with Jerusalem in Isaiah (2:3,4:3,4;40:9;52:1,2) and other O.T. books. Most of the time it's used literally, but in Hebrews 12, Mt.Zion is used symbolically in reference to the New Covenant vs. Old(Mt.Sinai) along with the "heavenly Jerusalem"; neither are exactly equal to heaven though.
