Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and Massachusetts Bay

This was the original seal of the Massachusetts Bay Colony - in use from 1629-1692. The indian is quoting the Macedonian man in Paul's vision [Acts 16] with the words "Come over and help us." It is a sad commentary on the state of our Biblical [il]literacy that most Christians today[myself included] couldn't tell you the source of this quote though it was familiar enough in the 17th century to be used on a commercial shipping seal.
