Women of the Word, Part 1 - Rahab
In this lesson, we explore the place of women in the Bible, especially against the backdrop of contemporary culture which claims that the BIble is fundamentally misogynistic and has led directly to the oppression of women.
After laying a foundation to appreciate the Bible's witness about women, we explore first Rahab the Canaanite, who exhibited heroic faith in Israel's God, and thus saved her whole family, and became by God's grace an ancestor of the Messiah. Rahab teaches us that no matter how bad our beginnings, God generously honors simple trust in him, which is more than sufficient for our salvation.
