The Interpreter Radio Show is a weekly discussion of matters of interest to the hosts, guests, and callers of the show. The views expressed on the Interpreter Radio Show are those of the individuals involved and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Interpreter Foundation, nor should statements made on the show be construed as official doctrinal statements of the Church.
I thoroughly enjoyed your discussion.
Regarding Rahab, Jewish tradition is that she was also an innkeeper and that would explain why the spies had “lodged there.” The genealogy in Matthew 1 states that Rachab was married to Salmon of the Tribe of Judah and that she was the mother of Boaz who married Ruth (It is interesting to speculate that perhaps Salmon was one of the two spies?) Boaz was a good man so it would be safe to assume that Rachab was a good mother. According to Matthew, Rachab would then have been the great-great- grandmother of King David. However, the timeline does not seem to allow that. What do you think?
