Passage 9 | Jericho: City of Rahab

Tel es-Sultan, the ancient city of Jericho, is the lowest city on earth. Prized for its natural springs and trade location, Jericho was a highly fortified city destroyed in a massive conflagration when the Israelites entered the Promised Land. The Bible reveals that its walls fell flat, and that the children of Israel marched up into the city and destroyed it by fire. However over the last one-hundred years, another great battle has been going on in Jericho; the battle over whether or not archaeologists have actually discovered the city destroyed by Joshua as recorded in the Bible. While a debate continues on the dates associated with the proposed city destroyed by Joshua, the evidence from the strata is compelling and fascinating. The archaeology of Jericho, coupled with the biblical account, has captured the imagination of many, but just as captivating is the story of a woman by the name of Rahab, whom God saved from the destruction. Her story is one of the rare jewels to truly be examined in this treasure trove of facts and information. Jericho: City of Rahab captures the essence of her life in a way that will encourage and inspire you.
