The Prophet Hosea - Part 1
Oct 14, 2021

We are a Bible teaching ministry currently based in Cleveland Tennessee. Each week we broadcast...


The first prophets whose words are recorded in a separate book are Isaiah, Hosea, and Amos. They all began their time as prophets during the reigns of King Uzziah, who also was known by the name of Azariah, of Judah and King Jeroboam the second of Israel. Jeroboam begins his reign in Israel twenty-seven years before Uzziah begins his reign in Judah. This was a time of prosperity for both Judah and Israel. Hosea refers to the end of Jeroboam’s reign as the last of Jehu’s line to reign in Israel and continues his prophesies through the time of King Hezekiah. Amos refers to events that happen towards the end of Uzziah’s reign pronouncing judgment on Syria, Philistia, Phoenicia, and Edom along with Judah and Israel. Isaiah and Hosea continue prophesying through the reigns of Kings Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah. The prophet Jonah is also active during this time. What is going on in the kingdoms of Israel and Judah during this time?

  • Study Questions:

    1. How does Yeshua’s cursing of the fig tree Mark 11:12-14, 20-21 parallel with Gomer the daughter of Diblaim? Compare Amos as a tender of the Sycamore tree (fig) with Yeshua’s parable about the fig tree in Luke 13:6-8.

    2. Jonah prophesied that God would save the northern kingdom of Israel through King Jeroboam (2 Kings 14:23-29) How did God save the kingdom through Jeroboam? Is there any parallel with what God did with Nineveh, Assyria?

    3. The Valley of Jezreel is surrounded by hills and mountains including Mt. Carmel, Mt. Gilboa, Mt. Tabor, the foothills of Nazareth, and the hill of Megiddo. What are some of biblical events that happened or will happen in or around the Valley of Jezreel? What is the significance of name Jezreel meaning God will sow?

    4. Ahab and Jezebel’s murder of Naboth to steal his vineyard is an important reason for God’s judgment on Ahab and Jezebel. What is the significance of the vineyard in scripture?
