Abstract The growing interest in diaspora mission requires consideration of the pertinent biblical material. This essay focuses on two parts of the Old Testament: the patriarchal narratives of Genesis and Israel’s Law. The former introduces the reader to migrant experiences of the people of God and then connects these to their call to be a blessing to all the earth. The latter contends that Old Testament Law can serve as a paradigm for diaspora mission today in the form of tangible initiatives on behalf of diaspora peoples, both within the Christian community and beyond.
