The Star of David, known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David, is a recognized as a symbol of modern Jewish identity and Judaism. Its shape is that of a hexagram, the compound of two equilateral triangles. Messianic Christians also identify with it and it is used as part of the symbol for Messianic Judaism.
Messianic Judaism is a modern Judeo-Christian movement, accepting Jesus Christ as the true Messiah while continuing to celebrate and adhere to certain Jewish traditions. To celebrate this contemporary Christian movement steeped in ancient tradition, Logos Trading Post presents a special collection of sterling silver Christian jewelry we have called Messianic Jewelry. The Star of David - or literally “the Shield of David” in Hebrew - is an emblem synonymous with Judaism, and the Messianic symbol takes this star and places a cross in its center, further indication of a movement that is truly Christian and deeply Jewish.
