I remember reading two names, as you mentioned in your post, and always wondered how the two became conflated. Yes, the names are similar- Rahab and Rachab- yet they are also obviously different, enough so that one has to wonder how Rachab ceased to be, as far as what is taught in Bible study anyway.Well.....thank you very much for the kind words.
Earlier in this same thread the mention of "The Harlot Rahab" from Jericho marrying into the Messianic bloodline was brought up. If you would like to include her story here as well.....it might be apropos.
Your thoughts on the matter are certainly appropriate and welcome here.
