Jan. 2 – Psalm 2 – Andrew

v. 6 – “Zion” is a literal place: it’s the name of the tallest hill in Jerusalem.  Today, it’s the site of the Temple Mount.

In the Bible, Mount Zion comes to represent ground zero for God’s activity on Earth.  This is why in the Bible people always go “up” to Jerusalem–it’s about ascending the holy hill.
