Text: “Likewise also, was not Rahab the harlot justified by works, when she had received the messengers, and had sent them out another way? For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead.” – James 2:25, 26

Comment: The most impressive thing about Rahab was her faith in the Almightiness of Jehovah the God of Israel and of the whole world (Psalm 89:11) which made her take sides with the Israelites. It is not enough for anyone to claim to have faith in God; what is important is the work of righteousness by which the claim can be justified. When Joshua led the children of Israel to capture Jericho, the whole city was burnt down but Rahab and all in her father’s household were spared according to the words of the spies because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out the land of Jericho. – Joshua 6:20-25; Hebrew 11:30,31.
