    people, Israel. God’s love for Israel began with unconditional promises of progeny, blessing, and land for its ancestors (Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Esau, Jacob, Joseph and his brothers). God’s steadfast love (hesed) did not make Israel mindful of a mutual relationship that she, the elected people, were supposed to behave appropriately. Israel’s rebellion and unfaithfulness caused the wrath of YHWH. However, regardless of divine judgment and cursing, due to Israel’s disloyalty to God, Israel still

    Hosea 1:1-3:5 The ministry of Hosea took place between 780 and 725 B.C.E. During this time in the Northern Kingdom of Israel, the people of God were prosperous but unfaithful (Tenney Vol. 3). It was a time of paganism, marital infidelity, and general disdain towards God. Hosea’s entire ministry was a reflection of the unfaithfulness of Israel and the love that God still had for her. Israel was the metaphorical bride of God. She was unfaithful, yet God constantly took her back and loved her. The message
