The person who receives or inherits what belongs to a relative. The heir usually inherited these things when the relative died. In the Old Testament, Israel was the heir of God and received the Promised Land as an inheritance from God (Gen. 15). In the New Testament, God’s people are also called heirs of God. They receive the gifts of righteousness, eternal life, and the kingdom of God (Rom. 8:15%u201417).
