Johannes Jung was born in 1658 in the village of Siefersheim, Kurpfalz, Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation (according to present-day administrative borders: Siefersheim, Alzey-Worms, Rheinhessen, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany). Johannes was baptised in the village church, built around the year 1200, and still functioning today. Built as a Catholic church, after the Reformation it became a Simultankirche, that is, a church used by both Lutherans and Catholics alike, albeit at different times of the day. This situation was quite common in the Kurpfalz. In Siefersheim the village church was shared until about 1903, when the Catholics built a new church, St. Martin, leaving the old church to the Lutherans. Siefersheim lies in the wine-growing region called Rheinhessen.
