Boaz’ Mom

I don’t think it’s ever clicked in my head that Boaz’ mother was Rahab. For those of you who haven’t read the book of Joshua recently, Rahab was the prostitute in Jericho who hid Joshua’s spies from the people of the city and was spared for her fear of God (Joshua 2).
 
I wonder if this example of inclusion of a non-Hebrew is part of what led Boaz (who later married a non-Hebrew, Ruth) to be more open to seeing Ruth for her heart rather than her ethnicity.
