Editorial Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to vividly depict the works of scripture. He speaks in a pleasant, friendly voice but with authority, frequently incorporating contemporary references. The programs are a lively combination of a sermon and college lecture.

In this episode, Dr. Creasy discusses The Minor Prophets Pt. 1 (Hosea-Jonah).

Publisher's Summary

The Minor Prophets are minor because they are shorter in length than the Major Prophets, not because they are less important: Isaiah is 66 chapters long; Obadiah is 1 chapter.

All of the Minor Prophets write during the time of the kings, 1050 – 586 B.C., or after the return from Babylonian Captivity, 539 – 430 B.C. Most tell us when they are active. Hosea, for example, begins: “The word of the Lord that came to Hosea son of Beeri during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah…” (Hosea 1: 1). That is the same time during which Isaiah takes place, and the historical context for Hosea is the same as that of Isaiah: The Assyrian conquest of the northern kingdom of Israel in 722 B.C. and the Assyrian attack against Judah and Jerusalem in 701 B.C.

Remember, a prophet always writes into his own historical context, and the primary meaning we draw from what he says always emerges from that historical context.
