The Gospel in Hosea
The gospel is not just outlined in the New Testament. All Scripture tells the story of Christ and the salvation found in him—and this is definitely true of Hosea. While this study is focused on Hosea, it will prove to be a useful introduction to all of the Old Testament books of prophecy, demonstrating how the prophets preached the gospel in advance. Hosea provides pictures of God—both of his anger and of his mercy—that are seen nowhere else in Scripture. It describes sin and idolatry in unforgettable ways. This study also introduces the subject of biblical poetry. This is an extremely important subject for all students of the Bible because poetry is, behind narrative, the most common form of literature used in the Bible. 111 pages. Eight-week study.
