"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."
(John 15:5)
    University Bible Fellowship of Shippensburg, Pennsylvania

Hosea is the first book of the 12 Minor Prophets. (“Hosea” means “salvation.”) Hosea directed this prophecy toward Northern Israel, which he called Ephraim. He prophesied for almost 40 years, during the reigns of 7 different kings, 4 of whom were assassinated. It was a time when the unfaithfulness of Israel was bearing bitter fruit. God loved his people in spite of their unfaithfulness, and in order to show them his faithfulness and love, he sent his prophet Hosea to call them to repent. Hosea was told to preach not only with his mouth, but to demonstrate God’s faithful love with his life as well. He was told to marry a prostitute and love her and be faithful to her to the end. May God help us to learn the love of God deeply as we study this book!
