Rahab appears as one of only four women in the named genealogy of Christ, as told in the book of Matthew. As such, she is elevated to a unique position even though she was a prostitute and not Jewish. The story of Rahab is an amazing story of faith by a despised member of society and from within a godless nation. Rahab’s life changed through an act of faith in which she went from harlot to heroine. So too can our lives be changed though our faith in the same God.
