The Strangers are Family

Ezekiel says that in the New Covenant the land and inheritance will be divided by the twelve tribes of Israel, and that strangers will also be included in the inheritance: "'It shall be that you will divide it by lot as an inheritance for yourselves, and for the strangers who dwell among you and who bear children among you. They shall be to you as native-born among the tribes of Israel. And it shall be that in whatever tribe the stranger dwells, there you shall give him his inheritance,' says the Lord God" (Ez. 47:22-23)
