There is no coded language here. Rahab was a prostitute. She lived in a land that would eventually be conquered by the nomadic Israelites. She lived in the Promised Land given to Israel by God. Her actions proved to be beneficial to the eventual residents of the land. Not only is she mentioned in Jesus’ genealogy, she is mentioned in the book of Hebrews as a example of great faith. How does faith in God secure peace in a season of waiting?
