About Rahab

Joshua 2:1-21 - Biblical Account

Rahab: "‪Good girls, bad girls: the enduring lessons of twelve women of the Old Testament‬" By T. J. Wray Go to Page 43 to read about Rahab, "The Heroic Prostitute with a Heart of Gold". The ancient rabbis regarded Rahab as one of the most beautiful women in Jewish history. She was said to be one of the four great beauties, the other three being Sarah, Abigail, and Esther (Meg. 15a).

Wikipedia - English

According to Talmudic tradition Rahab married Leader Joshua on Nun, which would place her elsewhere in the tree, but Christian sources (Matthew 1:5 - "And Salmon begat Booz of Rachab;") put her here, although some scholars claim this was another woman with the same name. The Eastern Church (Christian) Ethiopian tradition (Book of Adam and Eve 13:3) also argues against this, listing Salmon's wife as Saphila, the daughter of Aminadab - i.e. a completely different lineage.

Rahab helps the spies who come to Jericho. See Joshua 6:22-25 -Rahab removed from Jericho on it's capture.
Rahab was a harlot who lived in Jericho. She hid the spies of Joshua & because of this, the Israelites spared her life when they conquered Jericho.
