Referring to Marinus de Jonge, the author calls Jesus a stranger from heaven—he is the king of the kingdom of heaven. Christians are his members and share his life. As strangers on earth, they do not have an enduring city in the world (Heb. 13:14). They are not foreigners somewhere, but they are principally foreigners. They do not strive for earthly power, but participate in the life of foreigners. Due to this position, they feel acquainted with foreigners. They share the experience of exclusion, and, by consequence, strangers share their community—they believe by their exclusion.
