Prepare Yourself for Hosea

Eric Costanzo

The Book of Hosea no doubt raises lots of questions. God calls his servant and prophet, Hosea, to enter into a relationship that brings nothing but rejection and misery. The lies and heartbreak faced by Hosea become a picture of the unfaithfulness and rejection faced by God Himself on account of His people, Israel. Yet God chooses to honor His promises and remain faithful in love to Israel, just as Hosea will do for his estranged wife.

In order to prepare for some of the hard verses that are coming in the book, you will find below a list of the Scripture passages and dates they will be covered. (NOTE: October 6 will be one week pause in this series.) I encourage you to look ahead and read these passages in order to be prepared for any discussions or questions that might arise with children or others as a result.

September 8: Hosea 1:1-9 – 2:1

September 15: Hosea 2:2-7, 14-23

September 22: Hosea 3:1-5

September 29: Hosea 4:1-19, Chapter 5

October 13: Hosea 6:1-3, Chapters 6-7

October 20: Hosea 8:1-4, Chapters 8-10

October 27: Hosea 11:1-11

November 3: Hosea 12:1-6, 7-14, 13:1-3

November 10: Hosea 13:4-16

November 17: Hosea 14:1-9

The gracious and loving character of God that we see in the Book of Hosea has a wonderful parallel in Jesus’ Parable of the Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-32). This parable will help us tremendously as we journey through Hosea together.

As part of this series, I’ve challenged us to choose from the following books to read alongside Hosea which will be referenced regularly throughout the series. You can find more information and direct links to preview/order the books HERE.

Hosea: The Heart and Holiness of God by G. Campbell Morgan

The Prodigal God: Recovering the Heart of the Christian Faith by Timothy Keller

The Return of the Prodigal Son: A Story of Homecoming by Henri Nouwen

I look forward to taking this journey with you. Read ahead, pray through these texts, and let’s see what all the Lord has to teach us through the Book of Hosea and the Parable of the Prodigal Son.
