Increasingly widespread migration of people has become a massive movement across the world. What does the Bible say about immigration? How should we treat “foreigners”? In this course, you will gain a biblically grounded perspective that will help us as Christians to think more critically and compassionately about our immigration crisis today. To God, we are all His people who are worthy of love and respect.
