Hosea 1:1-2:1

Today’s Reading is Hosea 1:1-2:1.
In addition to writing and speaking messages from God, Hebrew prophets often acted out prophetic parables:
Ahijah from Shiloh
Isaiah
Jeremiah (shorts, clay jar, yoke)
Ezekiel (acts out the siege of Jerusalem, cuts his hair, as a refugee, trembling, wooden stick)
Hosea has to create difficult family situations for himself to depict the unfaithfulness of king Jerobeam II of Israel.
