Notice the place of Rahab, “a shady lady”, in the history of God’s redemption of His people. What lessons can we take from Rahab’s story?
Joshua 2:8–13 is the most important part of that chapter. Why do you think that is? Application to you?
In Joshua 2:10–11 Rahab shares what she and all Israel heard. What was it? How did it affect her? Is there an application for our witness?
In Joshua 2:12–13 what is Rahab asking for? Does she have a right to ask for it? Do you? Why?
God has clearly promised the land to Israel. Why the need for spies to view the land? To confirm the promise? Is that a lack of faith?
Clearly the story of Rahab was very important to the writer. It showed something amazing and unexpected about God and the people of God. What was it? What can we learn from it?
