The women in the Bible asked the same three questions we all still ask today: How does everyone else see me? How do I see myself? How does God see me?
The Known By Name Bible study series for women—taught by seasoned Bible teachers Jada Edwards, Kasey Van Norman, and Nicole Johnson—will take you and your group through the lives of biblical women to learn more about God and how to answer these essential questions.
Rahab's story, found in the book of Joshua, is a story of a girl boss, an assertive, confident woman who did what she had to do to provide for her family. Her identity was shaped by her upbringing. With no Bible study to join or podcast to download, Rahab learned her beliefs and behaviors in a culture that believed in gods, not God. But when opportunity knocked, she boldly trusted in the God she had never known, and became something she never imagined—a woman who brought freedom to generations.
Follow Rahab in this 4-session Bible study as she trusts God's final word about her worth above society's words. You will learn how to shed unhelpful labels and fears, and instead revel in God's unconditional love and acceptance of you–just as you are. You can be free from shame and doubt.
This study guide features video notes, group discussion questions, and between-session activities like reflecting on the drama and teachings, studying the character story in Scripture, memory verses, and journaling.
