Pilgrim

PILGRIM (Gr. parepidēmos, a sojourner in a strange place). Heb.11.13-Heb.11.16 (kjv) shows that the faithful sought a heavenly city and did not consider themselves permanently attached to earth. 1Pet.2.11 exhorts Christians to purity because of this status. Pilgrims might be exiles (rsv) or voluntary sojourners in a foreign country. NIV uses the terms “aliens” and “strangers.”
