A new betrothal

André van Oudtshoorn on Hosea 2:1-23

February 19, 2012

This sermon, part of the Hosea series, was preached on Sunday Morning.

In this chapter God moves away from the word play on the children and deals with 'the wife'. Again there is this terrible threat followed by a rich promise. The promise is all about what God will do – not what the people have done. This comes to a climax in the new covenant/ betrothal between God and his people.


Hosea 2:1-23
