Spiritual Adultery (Hosea)
Theme: Spiritual Adultery
Leading Question: “Why should modern Christians read the “minor” prophets?
All of our lessons this quarter focus on the so-called “minor” prophets, the last 12 books of the Hebrew Bible. The official study guide takes us through 10 of the books, leaving out only Obadiah and Nahum, and we study them in the order in which they appear in our English Bibles. In the Hebrew Bible, they are considered one book, “The Twelve,” and extend from the last few decades of the kingdom of Israel (Amos, Hosea) – Israel fell in 722 to the Assyrians – to some 150 years after the destruction of Jerusalem by Babylon (586 BC) the time Nehemiah (Malachi).
