This woman, Rahab, in my humble opinion is one of, if not the most understated women of the Bible. You see her name mentioned nearly a dozen times, in seven books of the Bible. Why is she not talked about more? The line of King David, and consequently Jesus, mentions this woman, yet she isn’t talked about much.
I’m sure you’ve heard the story of how she hid the Israeli spies in her rooftop. (Found in Joshua 2, and you see how she was blessed for her actions in Joshua 6)
Not too often though, is she talked about as a matriarch in the line of King David. It’s mind blowing to me that God would use a prostitute to carry the line of the Messiah! Does this not blow your mind?! When I first realized this it took “Jesus, friend of sinners” to a whole new level.
