The prophet Hosea ministered during one of the most difficult times in Israel’s history. In Hosea’s day, both Israel and Judah faced serious threats from Assyria. In addition, by the time Hosea completed his book, the kingdom of Israel had fallen under God’s severe judgment, and judgment threatened Judah as well. In the midst of these struggles, God called Hosea to speak wisdom to his people. So, what did Hosea tell them? And what can we learn from his wisdom today? This course introduces the background of the prophet Hosea and his book, provides an overview of the book’s content and structure, and explores the wisdom revealed in it.
