HOSEA: THE BOOK
  • Part of “The Book of the Twelve” in Hebrew Bible
  • Message is almost entirely to the Northern Kingdom (never mentions Jerusalem or any city of S. Kingdom)
  • Time Frame: Reigns of 4 kings of Judah & 1 king of Israel (1:1).
  • Era described in 2 Kings 14:23-29 (752-724 B.C.)
  • A time of relative peace & prosperity, which lulled people into thinking “all is well” - & it wasn’t

Hosea: the man
  • Little known about him except for father’s name (Beeri)
  • Israel’s unfaithfulness to God (“adultery”) is illustrated in the tragedy of Hosea’s marriage to Gomer
  • Like other prophets, he suffered great pain & humiliation in order to convey God’s message
hosea plot
Hosea: plot
  • Hosea is told to marry Gomer, a prostitute & have children by her
  • Gomer gives birth to 3 children; not all are Hosea’s
  • Gomer apparently leaves Hosea for another man & ends up being sold into slavery
  • Hosea finds Gomer & buys her back for himself
  • The Hosea/Gomer story becomes a parable of Israel’s unfaithfulness toward God & of His undying love for her
  • Israel has sinned gravely & must be punished, but God will eventually redeem her
