Joshua 2:11 "For the Lord your God, He is God in Heaven above and on earth beneath." Rahab, a prostitute in Jericho, had expressed this statement to the spies of Israel when they visited her. She then acted out her faith, risking her life to hide the spies from authorities who sought after them. A woman of strong conviction, constitution and faith had to be depicted in this painting. At this depicted moment, Rahabs' world is shaken. The walls have fallen; the city is on fire. Jerichos' citizens, who she knew, are being utterly destroyed. She watches all of this sadly, but also knowing that she and her family have been spared by the faithful and true God of Israel.
