John Leland Baptist College

   

  THE COLLEGE SEAL  

  The Greek phrase at the bottom of the seal is the College Motto:  

 u`pe.r Cristou/ kai. th/j  evkklhsi,aj 

 

  It reads: 

 For Christ and the Church.”   

 

 

The Greek letters within the shield stand for four chief virtues of the Christian scholar:

 

Alh,qeia = truth 

  Dikaiosu,nh = righteousness 

  Gnw/sij = knowledge 

Sofi,a = wisdom.

  

The college’s official theme verse is Proverbs 23.12:

 

 הָבִ֣יאָה לַמּוּסָ֣ר לִבֶּ֑ךָ וְ֝אָזְנֶ֗ךָ לְאִמְרֵי־דָֽעַת

“Apply thine heart unto instruction and thine ears to the words of knowledge.”
