The Christian Bible, in both Old and New Testaments, is calling and forming God’s people to enfold vulnerable immigrants as their kindred. On the basis of the inherent value of every people group (Gen 9–10), and grounded in God’s own covenant com- mitment to refugees (Deut 10:18–19), God’s people are to offer a place of protection and belonging for people on the move.
