When Rahab and Indonesian Christian Women Meet in Third Space
This article aims to read the Rahab story in Joshua 2:1–24 with its implication for Indonesian Christian women. Using a sociological reading and postcolonial feminist analysis as well as an autobiographical criticism, the author draws a connection between Rahab's own multiple colonizations and those of Indonesian Christian women. This way of reading allows Rahab to use her personal voice to invite Indonesian Christian women to speak back to their own oppressions and to imagine a world where they could create a third space in which they can actively and innovatively resist oppression.
