Hosea - Bible Study Book with Video Access: Unfailing Love Changes Everything

Jennifer Rothschild

The book of Hosea--it's a deeply personal and passionate love story, yet it's a difficult story. As an account full of harsh judgment unfolds, we find in its midst a rare and pure gem: the truest and purest of loves.

Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. The study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. It provides background to better understand the intricacies of the man and his message. You'll be guided to understand, but more especially to apply the message of the prophet of love.

The book will challenge us with judgment so harsh it will singe our hair--an unheeded sermon warning of devastating doom shortly to come. But it will show us the kind of love we dream about. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouse--and more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hope--hints and portents pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah.

Video Sessions:
  • Session 1: Ingredients of Hosea (32:22)--In this session, Jennifer shares the background of the Book of Hosea by pointing out four key ingredients. She reminds us that God is the main character of the Book of Hosea and it is His unfailing love that changes everything for Hosea, Gomer, Israel, and us.
  • Session 2: When You Say "I Do" To I Am (28:10)--Why would a man like Hosea marry a woman like Gomer? Why would God chose to love us? We learn that God is love and it is His love that makes us all loveable. We have a new identity when we remember His Word and His promises.
  • Session 3: When You Ain't Got Yada, You Ain't Got Nada (30:13)--We are prone to wander away from God. Men, women, the church, people have done this for centuries: lost their first love. The problem is a lack of knowledge and avoiding the temptation to put activity for God in place of relationship with Him.
  • Session 4: Lose The Gomerisms (27:30)--In this teaching session we see that the honeymoon is over for Hosea and Gomer. Gomer left Hosea for something she thought she was missing. We do the same when we stray from God to get what we already have. Like Gomer, incorrect thinking leads us to corrupt thinking.
  • Session 5: Shame Off You (25:24)--Shame. It isolates. It exposes. If the enemy cannot use shame or isolate you, he is going to catch you in the act of being human. No matter where you are, God sees who you are. But remember that where shame isolates, truth includes. Jesus buys us back and He covers the whole price to take us back.
  • Session 6: Redeem the Idolotrinkets (35:23)--In this session Jennifer refers to idolotrinkets and those things in our lives that we've mistakenly or intentionally assigned God qualities to as a way to excuse, explain, or justify our actions. An idol is anything that replaces or reduces God. Learn ways to redeem your idols through prayer.
  • Session 7: His Boundary of Love (21:35)--Without realizing it at times, we live in the midst of enemies who want to influence us and overcome us. Whomever we allow to influence us will rule us. However, just as God wanted His people to lose the yoke of slavery, He has that same desire for us. God wants us to live redeemed and free as followers of Jesus Christ.
