Bible story: Joshua and Rahab's scarlet cord

Creative activities based on the Bible story of Joshua and Rahab's scarlet cord

The Bible story of Rahab's cord is found in Joshua chapter 2. As Joshua prepared to lead the Israelites into the promised land, he sent two spies to scout out the city of Jericho. The spies were hidden by Rahab, a prostitute, who believed that God had given the land to the Israelites. In exchange for hiding the spies, Rahab asked that she and her family be spared when the Israelites conquered the city. The spies agreed, and Rahab hung a scarlet cord from her window as a sign of her faith and obedience.

This story teaches us about the power of faith, the importance of obedience, and the value of God's grace and mercy.
