Israel's Idolatry, Wickedness, Captivity, and Restoration

Hosea was the only one of the writing prophets to come from the northern kingdom, Israel; he speaks of its king as “our” king (Hosea 7:5).

Judging from the kings mentioned in 1:1, Hosea must have prophesied for at least 38 years, though almost nothing is known about him except what we read in this book.  But since his prophetic activity is dated by reference to a number of kings of Judah, the book was probably written in Judah after the fall of the northern capital, Samaria (722–721 b.c.) — an idea suggested by references to Judah throughout the book.

Hosea began his ministry when Israel, under Jeroboam II (793–753), was at the zenith of its power. Hosea then witnessed the rapid disintegration and fall of the northern kingdom, going from its peak to its end in less than 30 years:
 • Jeroboam II (793–753). A reign of great prosperity
 • Zechariah (753–752). Reigned six months; assassinated by Shallum
 • Shallum (752). Reigned one month; assassinated by Menahem
 • Menahem (752–742). Unspeakably cruel; a puppet of Assyria
 • Pekahiah (742–740). Assassinated by Pekah
 • Pekah (752–732). Assassinated by Hoshea
 • Hoshea (732–722). Fall of Samaria (721). End of northern kingdom

The kings of the southern kingdom during whose reigns he prophesied (1:1) were
 • Uzziah (792–740), a good king
 • Jotham (750–732), a good king
 • Ahaz (735–716), a very wicked king
 • Hezekiah (716–687), a good king, during whose reign Samaria fell

Hosea was a younger contemporary of the prophet Amos and
an older contemporary of the prophets Isaiah and Micah.
