ABOUT- Based on Joshua 2: 1-22
"The King of Jericho has gotten word of the men. Soldiers are raiding homes and business in search of them. The spies are seeking shelter. She contemplates the men and the foreign God they represent and she feels trapped by her status and her employment within the stone walls that surround her. Surely the God of these men will destroy her and her family if nothing is done. If she gives them hiding place, the King of Jericho may find out about the accommodation she provided them and that is punishable by death. This painting represents the moment in time where she must choose. The decision is made and she hides the spies of Israel on her roof. Her actions of that moment change her life and history forever. The red scarf upon her head, signaling her as a prostitute in a house of ill repute, becomes the sign that will save her life when the army of Israel returns to destroy the city. Her belief in the ultimate triumph of Israels' Jehovah removes her as a harlot from her own idolatrous people. She becomes one with the people of Israel and this former prostitute will eventually become an ancestress in the royal line from which Jesus the Messiah will come."
