    Matthew 1: 5
    5 Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab. Boaz became the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth. Obed became the father of Jesse, 6 Jesse the father of David the king.

    Hebrews 11:31
    By faith [believing] the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not, when she had received the spies with peace.
    Some sources say what she indeed was, was more of an innkeeper. It's fascinating to see "Biblical" type historians and archaeologists opine on indeed, how Rahab was.

    Apparently, a Spanish-made movie, "La Tierra Prometida" on the book of Joshua, portrays her as a strong, caring woman. It looks like a lengthy TV series.

    Rahab is a wonderful typology in the Old Testament as well as being a real person. A pagan and a prostitute comes to the aid of Joshua and the Hebrews and is given the rare privilege of being an ancestor of King David and most importantly the Christ.

    I show my lack of knowledge of the Old Testament but I found the story interesting, I have a little study manual on I believe what they call the books of prophets, Joshua, Judges, 1 and 2 Samuel, Kings I and II. It really aided in reading these. Fascinating individual.
