The Scarlet Cord - the story of Rahab

There's a lie in this story, if you read Joshua 2, but Rahab's story takes you deep into the New Testament as well as the Old.

She's an amazing woman, and James the brother of Jesus - a descendant by Joseph and Mary - mentions her with Abraham in his letter.  Matthew puts her in his genealogy and she is in the Hebrews' Hall of Fame.

She is also linked with the Good Wife of Proverbs and Lydia, Europe's first Christian. It just keeps on coming - she is amazing.
