-Zion/Sion: In Old Testament Hebrew language, it's 'Zion'; New Testament written in Greek, it's 'Sion'. In Old Testament the word referred to a mountain, Mount Hermon:.Deuteronomy 4:48.

In scripture the word Zion never means the church. It always signifies blessing on Earth and is specially in connection with Israel, which today is a spiritual Israel all believers can be in, because the ultimate blessing of the nations will be through this spiritual Israel. Anyone can now enter into its spiritual import.

The name Zion is derived from a Hebrew root 'tsahah', meaning 'to be dry'. Zion was one of the eminencies on which Jerusalem was built. It was surrounded on all sides, except the north, by deep valleys, that of the Tyropoeon separating it from Moriah, which it surpasses in height by 105 feet. It was the Southeastern hill of Jerusalem. When David took it from the Jebusites.(Joshua 15:63; 2Samuel 5:7).he built on it a citadel and a palace and Zion became."the city of David":.1Kings 8:1; 1Chronicles 11:5.

Zion is generally known as the historic land of Israel being a symbol of the Jewish people and also a term generally of the Jewish people and also Israel. Israel and Judah were separate nations back then. The words 'Zionism' and 'Zionists' today refer to those concerned with the development and support of the state of Israel.

In the later books of the Old Testament this name was sometimes used.to denote Jerusalem in general and sometimes Israel.(who is Israel today):.Psalms 51:18

In the New Testament it is used sometimes to denote the Church of God.(Hebrew 12:22).and sometimes the heavenly city:.Revelation 14:1.
