Rahab is the daugther of a Canaanite farmer, noted for her beauty. Her father takes her to Jericho for the pagan New Year celebration to find her a wealthy husband. But the king has determined that Rahab, as the most beautiful, shall be his ritual bride. Sala, son of an Israelite merchant, is in Jericho as a spy for Joshua’s army. He teaches Rahab his faith, and Rahab abandons the pagan gods and pleads with the One True God of the Israelites for deliverance. She is willing to risk both her life and her reputation to follow the Israelites. Will Sala be able to escape with Rahab as the famous battle of Jericho commences?
