Background InformationThe children of Israel have been delivered out of the bondage of Egypt by Moses, crossed the Red Sea on dry land, been fed manna from God, wandered in the wilderness for 40 years, and crossed the Jordan River on dry land. I think we can agree that this was a very eventful period in their lives, but hold on there’s more where that came from, enter … Rahab-the-harlot!
As you will discover during this study of Rahab she was a harlot or in modern day terms a prostitute. What kind of feelings do the words harlot and prostitute bring to mind?
What are some things that might cause a woman to become a prostitute?
Using Bible commentaries, Bible dictionaries, Bible encyclopedias, etc do some research on harlotry and prostitution during Bible times and write down at least two different things you discover. (I think you will be surprised at what you find!)
