Difficulties in the placement and translation of Hosea chapter 3 lead to interesting questions.  Is there a second wife in Hosea’s experience?  What can we learn about the price paid for the woman, and how does the exile affect obedience to Torah?

From Hosea 2:15-25 , Yoel and Jeff discuss how the Northern Kingdom perverted their perception of YHVH to be like the Ba’alim, what the “wilderness” experience is for them, and the response of the earth to the presence of the people of Israel.

The discussion of Hosea continues in Chapter 2 with images of divorce, shaming and execution.  Yoel compares the language of Hosea with Ezekiel and Jeremiah, and he and Jeff discuss whether the redemption will be a sudden, big event or a gradual thing, as well as whether these judgements mean ending the covenant.
