Joshua 2–6Story of Rahab
Her neighbors called her a woman of the night. The Lord God called her a heroine of the faith.
Rahab worthy, listing her among the faithful in Hebrews 11.
We meet our unlikely heroine when Joshua dispatched two spies to check out Jericho. Arriving in town, they "entered the house of a prostitute named Rahab and stayed there". Unfortunately, Joshua's men were spotted. The king of Jericho sent a message to Rahab: "Bring out the men who came to you". Instead, Rahab hid the men and told the king's soldiers the spies had left town.
Rahab asked these men to spare her family from certain death. The men assured her, "Our lives for your lives!".When the Walls of Jericho came tumbling down, one house remained standing. "Joshua spared Rahab the prostitute, with her family and all who belonged to her" .
Because of her faith, God saved Rahab in every sense of the word. The Israelites welcomed her into their camp, where a man named Salmon chose her for his bride.
