I read a portion of Luke 19 this morning; the place that says Yeshua entered Jericho and was passing through and I had some weird thoughts even for me.
I wondered if JESUS thought of Rahab, his great, great, great – ever how many greats it was Grandmother.
You know the story, right?
The spies came to check out the city prior to the marching around it and the ram horn blowing that GOD used to bring down the walls of that very strong city.
Do you also remember that Rahab and her family were spared because she had helped the spies?
Would you like to read the account? Check out Joshua Chapters 2 and 6.
So I wondered if JESUS thought of her and the account of the walls of Jericho falling as He was entering the City.
Or is it?
Rahab the Harlot as she is often called, converted.
She believed the WORD she heard about GOD and it was counted to her as Righteousness.
And centuries later Yeshua went to Jericho and another Outcast believed. Luke 19:1-10
I also read an article entitled
Rahab – The Harlot in the Genealogy of Christ

if you are interested.
And there you have it – a bit of my wonderings as I was reading Scripture this morning.
Do you wonder things as you read Scripture?
I hope you do. I hope as you read your Bible its pages open and you see and experience the people and the accounts provided for us so we may truly BELIEVE and no longer be Outcasts.
