Example text

Fontaine then moves to a short description of chs. 4-14 and the poetic style. Throughout her analysis, first published in 1989, Fontaine retains an objective descriptive mode. In that sense, she can be seen to comply with the text and its messages. However, Fontaine has also written a 'Response to (her) "Hosea"' for this volume. Here she declares openly that her introductory survey does not challenge traditional scholarly readings of Hosea concerning women and female sexuality, and explains why.

349-58. 1 In its final form, the book may be divided into two unequal complexes, the first comprising chs. 1-3 (Hosea's family mirrors God's relationship with Israel), and the second comprising chs. 4-14 (prophetic utterances). 10). Sociopolitical Context As with any prophetic book, it is impossible to grasp the major concepts of Hosea without some understanding of the social and political realities to which his prophecies were directed. Even though there is considerable debate about the proper chronological order of the oracles found in the work, the broad outlines of the period from which the book comes are clear, and these give some insight into the time frame and meaning of the individual passages.

Some speculate that the corrupt state of the text is a result of the adverse effects of political and social turmoil during the period in which it was written and smuggled to safety in Judah. Hosea''s Family Mirrors God's Relationship with Israel (Chapters 1-3) One of the most interesting features of the prophetic ministry is the performance of 'symbolic' actions. 1), prophets would carry out unusual or unexpected acts that became 'visual aids' illustrating their messages. In all likelihood, such behavior was influenced by both the concepts underlying 'sympathetic magic' and the belief that words, like actions, had magical power to create the very thing to which they referred.
