God’s people had been delivered from slavery in Egypt, led through the Red Sea, and wandered in the Sinai wilderness for forty years. There, they had received God’s Law and become as a nation, but they were still nomads. Their deliverance was not yet complete.
That last line of the story of Rahab in THE BIBLE miniseries is wonderful; it is a reference to that event forty years earlier, which God’s people had since celebrated every year in the Passover. It is a recognition that something like that is happening again for Rahab and her family, as recorded in the first chapters of the Bible book of Joshua. And that story, it turns out, is not just Rahab’s story; it is your story and mine, too!
