Jesse Tree Holy Women ~ Rahab

"Drop down dew ye heavens above
and let the clouds rain the just one."
Isaiah 45: 8

"Then she let them down by a rope through the window, for her house was on the outer side of the city wall and she resided within the wall itself."  Joshua 2: 15

Rahab was a harlot who sheltered two of Joshua's men when they came to spy on Jericho. She defied the king's orders, deceived his soldiers and helped the Israelites escape to safety. For this act she and her family were spared by Joshua during the destruction of Jericho (Woman Word by Miriam Therese Winter).
