"The Red Rope"

by Stephanie Becken

Can God possibly bring about God's plans through a hooker who runs a hole-in-the-wall motel in Jericho, of all places? Well, yes. God can and God did (and does)!

Since God works through Rahab's brazen boldness, it says something about God. Namely, that God is a lot less concerned about job titles and identities than we might initially think.

Becken's play is not only fun, but pushes the edges of questions we might ask theologically about how God chooses to work God's plans, challenging the roles patriarchy assigns to women, and grace in loyalty & trust.

  • Characters  8 - 20
  • Duration Approx. 10 Minutes
  • Text Joshua 2
