Step into the story of Rahab, a woman who witnessed no miracles and knew none of God’s laws. She merely heard of God’s power—and believed.
The story of Rahab appears after God commissions Joshua to lead the Israelites after the death of Moses. No sooner do the people come to the edge of the Promised Land than God puts the whole drama on hold to tell us the story of a Canaanite prostitute. This interruption of the conquest story gives us our first glimpse into the theological significance of Rahab’s story.
In the New Testament, Rahab holds a surprisingly prominent position in several key faith passages—as well as being listed in the lineage of Christ! In fact, she marries a prince! The prostitute marries a prince! This is the stuff of movies. The heartbeat of the Bible is God’s passionate pursuit of his adulterous Bride—a theme that echoes within the depths of every human heart.
But the best part? Rahab’s story is our story. It’s a story centered on three key themes, without which there would be no Bible, no gospel, and no Savior: faith, grace, and salvation. Through her daring faith, Rahab hid enemy spies, defied her king, risked her life, and found the living God. By the time you finish this six-week study, you will never look at the story of Rahab the same way again.
