It combines the inspiration of a daily devotional and the insights of a commentary, but in language that is easy-to-understand. We will be working our way through the entire Bible offering a chapter-by-chapter overview of each book. The goal is to give you a solid understanding of the Bible’s overarching and unified message of redemption. We hope you enjoy.

Today we’ll get introduced to an unlikely character in the great hall of faith found in Hebrews chapter eleven. Verse 31 presents us with Rahab, a woman the author and the book of Joshua both describe as a prostitute. And yet, this woman of ill repute is listed as having had faith in God. In fact, it was her faith in God that kept the spies safe and her family alive. Faith isn’t tied to our spirituality or superior morality. It’s based on the reliability and reality of God. Rahab’s sinful lifestyle had earned her a well-deserved death, but this unlikely source, a prostitute, placed her unwavering faith in God – and lived.
