Living in the city of Jericho was a lady called Rahab who had sheltered two spies Joshua had sent to the city. They asked her to put a red cord in her window so that when the city was attacked she would be saved. – Slide 1
Joshua was wondering how God would help him capture the great walled city of Jericho. He saw a man with a sword nearby. ‘Are you friend or enemy?’ Joshua asked. – Slide 2
‘I am God’s messenger,’ said the angel, ‘And the Commander of God’s army.’ Joshua fell to his knees and said, ‘Tell me what God wants me to do.’ – Slide 3
Joshua went and told his soldiers, ‘God will give us the walled city of Jericho, but we must do what He has said. And if you find a red cord in a window, save Rahab.’ – Slide 4
Inside the walled city of Jericho, Rahab watched and waited. Joshua had promised to save her and her family, when the city was destroyed. – Slide 5
She saw the people of Israel walk right around the outside of the wall, once every day, for six days. – Slide 6
Then on the seventh day they walked right around the wall seven times that day, with the priests blowing trumpets. – Slide 7
And the very last time, when they all shouted, the great stone wall of Jericho fell right down! The city was theirs, not by a strong army fighting, but by God’s power. Rahab however, was kept safe and rescued. – Slide 8
