Episode Summary

Tony and Doug arrive outside the tent of Joshua on the sixth day of his seven-day assault on Jericho. With their future knowledge of the Bible they are able to convince Joshua that they are emissaries of the Lord, and he basically forces them to go into Jericho as spies. Doug is captured and tortured after they try to stop an execution, and Tony befriends a harlot, Rahab. With the help of Rahab and her father, a blind architect, they manage to free Doug. Tony and Rahab are set up for execution, but when a skeptical Anne tries to use the Tunnel to free them in opposition to how the Bible describes the incident, the Tunnel shuts down as if by some outside (dare we say Divine?) force. Tony and Rahab are spared when Joshua launches his attack and both the guys and the Project team witness the miracle just before they are whisked away once more.moreless

      • Father: (feeling Tony's face) He has the face of a thoughtful man. But his thoughts are strange to us. He has the face of a man far ahead of his time.

      • Rahab: And I dreamed that someday that someday there'd be a day of reckoning. When a great army would besiege Jericho. And tear down its wall. And destroy every house in the town.
        Tony: And your house would be the only one spared.
        Rahab: Yes. That's my dream. How did you know that?
        Tony: I read it in a book. Called the Bible. A book of divine revelation. Your name is in that book, Rahab. It says, "When Joshua destroyed Jericho, only Rahab did he spare. For in that whole city, she was the only good woman."

      • Tony: Don't be afraid, Rahab. We're not going to die here. It may take a miracle to save us, but a miracle will happen.
