What is the Book of Hosea about?
- What is the Book of Hosea about? How was it composed & in what sense
(if any) might it be regarded as True?
by Sr. Marina Issa
If we read swiftly through the chapters of Hosea, we can at once notice
that the book is written in a metaphorical and poetical way, which
gives the reader encouragement to dig deeper into its true meaning and
significance. The very uniqueness, which attracts the scholar's
attention, is how the prophecy is represented in the narrative.
Nevertheless, the script has always been challenging for critical
scholars to interpret, primarily because the book has a variety of
textual problems. The disjointed arrangement of the material can
sometimes misinform, and it is also problematical to illustrate whether
the narrative is an allegorical or literal event.
