Ministry to Prostitutes
Rahab was one of those unexpected characters in the Bible. Even though she made her living as a prostitute.
Rahab ran an inn built on the Jericho city wall where she hid the spies on her roof top. When the king of Jericho learned the men had been to Rahab's house, he sent orders for her to turn them over. She lied to the king's soldiers concerning the whereabouts of the spies, and sent them off in the opposite direction.
Then Rahab went up to the spies and pleaded for her life and for the lives of her family members. She made an oath with them. Rahab would keep silent about their mission and the Israelites would spare everyone in her household when they invaded the city. She was to hang a scarlet cord from her window as a sign, so the Jews could find and protect her.
In the miraculous battle of Jerico, the invincible city did fall. Joshua gave orders to rescue Rahab and all in her house. She and her family were adopted by the Jews and stayed with them.
