Rahab is a former prostitute who lived in the city of Jericho around the time that Joshua led the people of Israel into the Promised Land. She hid two of the people who were sent as spies from those seeking after them and sent them off another way in peace. In exchange, the people of Israel spared her as well as those within her family when they came to sack the city and destroy it. Rahab became part of Israel and married Salmon, through whom she became the mother of Boaz and then eventually the ancestress of both King David and Jesus Christ. Rahab was one of the Old Testament saints that was rewarded by Jesus after His Second Coming in the book "Glorious Appearing".
