Seven generations pass from the time we hear about earth's first woman, until the time we hear another woman's name mentioned in the scriptures. She appears in a single verse, in a time of violence and bloodshed. But she was tasked with a holy call, to protect and preserve her family's history when history was still being written. This is her story.
It’s the story preachers love to preach about. A harlot woman forgiven through selflessness and included in to the lineage of the Messiah. The ultimate picture of redemption, books have been written about it and many a lesson taught and inspiration drawn from this Canaanite woman in the doomed city of Jericho, but is it really the truth? Was the faithful Rahab really a harlot, a prostitute given to an immoral lifestyle but redeemed through belief?
