Sunday 30 June – Rahab

Rahab, a prostitute from the Canaanite city of Jericho, is to be found three times in the New Testament: once in the genealogy of Jesus; once in the “hall of fame” of those with great faith, listed in the letter to the Hebrews, and once in the letter of James, illustrating that faith is shown through works. Today Jonathan explored the subject of saving faith through the life of Rahab, from her encounter with two men from out of town, via the strange episode of the scarlet cord tied in her window, to her full induction into God’s chosen people to become the mother of Boaz and through his line of King David himself.
