This Week’s Haftarah

“Rebuke your mother, rebuke her; for she isn’t my wife, and I’m not her husband.”
In Haftarah Bamidbar, the prophet Hoshea uses imagery of divorce, shaming and execution to convey YHWH’s message to Israel. Yoel and Jeff Gilbert discuss these images, and the redemption, in this episode (3) of our Hoshea series with Talking Torah.
“I will betroth you to me forever; yes, I will betroth you to me in righteousness, in justice, in grace and in compassion; I will betroth you to me in faithfulness, and you will know YHWH.”
As a supplement to the previous recording, we more closely examine the text and message of Hoshea chapter 2, discussing the meaning of love in Deuteronomy vs. Hoshea, and the relationship of YHWH and Israel.

These teachings and recordings are made available free of charge.  If they have blessed you and you would like to support the research, time, and education that goes into producing them, you may do so HERE.
