This week, Pastor Ben Libby joins Pastor Tom Naumann for a look into the Old Testament book of Hosea. This is one of the "minor" prophets of the Old Testament who was sent to the northern kingdom of Israel at the same time that Isaiah and Micah prophesied to the southern tribe of Judah. Hosea was sent to call the people of Israel to repentance in a unique way, by marrying a prostitute named Gomer. Gomer's actions were a picture of the unfaithfulness of the people of Israel. The book also points us to Christ, who is found pointed to throughout the prophecy of this book. There is much for us to learn from this book still today as the LORD also calls us out of sin and to trust in His grace.
