Rahab

 

Pronunciation:  RAY-hab

Occurrences:  1

First Reference:  Yeshua 20:24-25

 

Will you not remember how that the harlot Rahab, though she was chief among sinners, put forth the hand to save the men which Joshua sent to spy out the land whereby he might give unto your fathers an inheritance?

Was she not saved from destruction, both her and her whole house because of this thing?

 

 

See:  Joshua

 

Summary:  According to the book of Joshua in the Hebrew Bible, Rahab was a prostitute from Jericho who assisted two spies sent by Joshua to investigate the security of the city. When soldiers came to apprehend the spies, Rahab hid them in bundles of flax in her roof. Upon escaping, the spies promised to spare Rahab and her family during the siege against the city. When Jericho fell, Rahab and her family were indeed saved from destruction.

 

While staying at the house of Porcius and Salome in Caesarea Philippi, Yeshua was rebuked by scribes and Pharisees for “entering the house of Gentiles and sinners” (Y:20:15-16). Yeshua responded to the Pharisees by referencing several scriptural examples of previous prophets who associated with those who would be considered by the Pharisees as sinners or Gentiles (Y:20:15-29).
