sermonette: Rahab's Spiritual Reality
Given 29-Sep-18; Sermon #FT18-06s; 18 minutes
Rahab, the brothel keeper, protected the Israelite spies from capture, knowing that God had determined to level sinful Jericho. Parallel to the symbolism of the blood over the door on the Passover, Rahab wove together a scarlet cord to enable the spies to escape and to identify her dwelling as the only part of Jericho that was to remain standing. Because of her resolute action on behalf of the spies, God "granted" Rahab into the line leading to David and Christ. As a spiritual daughter of Abraham, Rahab proved that the just shall indeed live by faith.
