Thread: Questions from the book of HOSEA

  1. #1

    Exclamation Questions from the book of HOSEA

    This is a Question and Answer study of the Book of HOSEA to help keep us in the Word. It is not an in depth study but more of a set of questions to motivate each of us to read.

    We will be using the ESV (English Standard Version) to get the questions from, so if the wording is different from what some of you may be reading, this is why.

    Thank you all for following along!

    HOSEA

    I'm going to start off by doing a little background on the dates of writing and some other information that I believe will help enhance this study.

    I will be getting my information from the ESV Study Bible (Online Version)

    Date

    The OT prophets commonly dated their ministries in conjunction with reigning kings. In Hosea's day the Judean kings were Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. The king of Israel (the northern kingdom, also called “Ephraim” in Hosea; see note on 4:17) was Jeroboam, son of Joash. Jeroboam's last year was 753 b.c., and Hezekiah's was 687, so Hosea's ministry was situated in this time period. The prophet's ministry was probably not that long (66 years), though a 35-year ministry is possible. The significant feature is that he ministered during the latter half of the eighth century. This period was the most turbulent and trying time in the history of Israel prior to the captivity.

    The Near East at the Time of Hosea

    c. 740 b.c.

    Hosea prophesied to Israel and Judah during the decades surrounding the fall of Samaria to the Assyrian Empire. The resurgence of this ancient empire dominated much of the politics of the ancient Near East from the time of Jeroboam and Azariah until the empire's demise at the end of the sixth century b.c. Assyria would eventually engulf nearly the entire Near East from Ur to Ararat to Egypt.

    Israel and Judah at the Time of Hosea

    c. 740 b.c.

    Hosea prophesied during a time of great political turbulence in Israel and Judah. The early part of his ministry witnessed a brief period of resurgence under the reign of Jeroboam II, who captured much of Syria for Israel. Within a couple decades, however, Israel and Syria attacked Judah, but Assyria in turn attacked Israel and captured Galilee and Gilead. Finally, in 722 b.c., the Assyrians captured Samaria itself and annexed the rest of Israel's territory into their empire.
