Note to the parent or teacher: Here is a 30-minute lesson plan to fill out the class “Cities of the Bible: The City of Jericho,” that covers the lesson objective, “Learn the major stories of the Old Testament.” (Christian Life and Faith: Bible Knowledge: General Bible Knowledge-1d)

ReadCities of the Bible: The City of Jericho.”

REVIEW PARAGRAPH 1:
Read
Joshua 2 and Joshua 6:1–5.

Ask the children what examples of faith-filled courage they see in these two passages. (For example, Rahab’s courage to hide the spies; later Rahab’s courage to hang the red rope in her window; the priests marching around Jericho with the trumpets.)

REVIEW PARAGRAPH 2:
Read
Luke 19:1–10 and “October Hero of the Month: Zacchaeus.”

Explore with the children why people considered Zacchaeus to be a sinner.

REVIEW PARAGRAPH 3:
Listen to “An Audio Bible Adventure: A New Leader and His Undercover Agents.”

Read Hebrews 11:30–31 and ask the children to explain in their own words why Rahab was included in this chapter as a woman of faith.

Read Matthew 1:5–6.

CONCLUSION:
Talk about what these two Bible characters from Jericho (Rahab and Zacchaeus) had in common. (Both were likely looked down on by others for their sins; both received mercy for themselves and their families; both put love into action.)
