Deeper Dive Podcast (Joshua 2:1-7)

Debbie, Randy, and Isaac talk about whether Rahab's profession could have been translated as "innkeeper" instead of "prostitute" and why those kinds of translation questions can actually help us see the big picture more clearly. We also talk about Rahab's lie to the Jericho authorities and its ethical implications for modern Christians.
