Marc Chagall was a pioneer for Jewish artists, he had a distinct style of painting dream like scenes of personal history and European folklore. He was a painter, printmaker, book illustrator, and he even made stained glass windows. He began experimenting with Cubism in 1910 when he moved to Paris and his style is considered a mixture of Cubism, Fauvism, and Symbolism. His supernatural subjects are also thought to have significantly influenced surrealism.

Rahab was, according to the Book of Joshua, a woman who lived in Jericho in the Promised Land and assisted the Israelites in capturing the city by betraying her people. Biblical interpreters have viewed Rahab as a model of hospitality, mercy, faith, patience, and repentance in her interaction with Joshua’s spies. Thus the harlot of Jericho became a paragon of virtue. When soldiers asked her to turn in the two spies in her home she instead hid them and when they left she asked them to spare her family in return for the assistance she gave them.
