Joshua and Rahab Bible Study Lesson
The Story of Rehab in the Bible Explanation

We're so blessed to share this Daily Bread study of the book of Joshua together. Last time we studied together, Joshua was preparing the children of Israel to enter into the Promised Land within three days.

You may remember when Joshua himself was sent by Moses to spy out the land. Well, Joshua also sent two men out to spy on the city of Jericho, which would be the first city that the children of Israel would encounter once they crossed the Jordan.

The spies lodged in the house of an harlot named Rahab. The king of Jericho was informed of the spies by someone, so the king sent a message to Rahab, to bring out the men that were staying there, because they were spies.

Joshua and Rahab Bible Study Truth
The Story of Rehab in the Bible Verses

But, Rahab hid them, and cleverly told the king's messengers, Some men did indeed happen by, but I didn't know where they were from. When it grew dark, they left and I didn't know where they went, but if you hurry, you'll probably catch them.

So the king's messengers left, and once they were well gone, Rahab went to the roof where she had carefully hidden the spies and said, I know that the Lord has given you the land and that everyone in the land fears you. We heard how the Lord dried up the Red Sea for you and destroyed Sihon and Og (the two kings of the Amorites).

When we heard these things, our hearts melted and every man lost his courage because of you, because the Lord your God, He is God in Heaven above and in Earth beneath. Now I beg you please, swear to me by the Lord, since I have shown you kindness, that you will also show kindness to my father's house (family) and save all of our lives.

The Story of Rehab in the Bible Prophecy

The spies agreed and Rahab let them down from the roof by a rope out the window and told them to hide in the mountain for three days until the king's men would return and then it would be safe to go their way.

The spies gave Rahab a line of scarlet thread to tie in her window to mark the place where Israel was to save Rahab and her family, and told her to bring all of her family into her home, but if any left her house, they would not be responsible for them.

They also warned that if she told anyone their business, all deals would be off. Rahab agreed to all. The spies left and she tied the red thread in the window.

The spies remained in the mountains for three days, then returned to Joshua and told him everything that had happened. They told him that the Lord had truly delivered all the land into their hands, because all the people of the country fear them.
