Notes: December 24, 2008 – Hosea 3 & 4

Hosea 3

  • Can anyone who is the least familiar with the Bible not see that Hosea’s purchase of a sinful wife is a picture of Christ’s redemption of sinful men?

Hosea 4

  • God’s controversy (Hosea 4:1) with the nation was that they should have known better. They were privileged to have the word and prophets of God; but they chose to live contrary to God’s express will.
  • People and priest alike lived in sin (Hosea 4:9).
  • Where did they turn for answers to their life questions (Hosea 4:12-13)?
  • Backsliders (Hosea 4:16). Not a little, but a lot.
