The book of Hosea presents a difficult mix of profound theology and historically situated abuse. Hosea teaches of God’s devotion to us and our responsibility to be faithful to Them and each other, but does so in the context of intensely troubling treatment of women and children.
This section covers the historical context of Hosea, prophetic symbolic actions, and implications of Hosea for our lives.
Jana and Natasha continue an insightful discussion on the themes of scripture and fidelity.
