THE BOOK OF

HOSEA

 

Overview:

This book is named after its author, who was taken captive to Babylon while he was a teenager by King Nebuchadnezzar in ca. 605 BC. It may be studied in two parts. The first part describes Daniel's ministry in Babylon (1:1-6:28):

(1) Daniel's Place in Nebuchadnezzar's Administration (1:1-21),
(2) Nebuchadnezzar's Dream (2:1-49),
(3) the Fire Furnace Incident (3:1-30),
(4) Nebuchadnezzar's 7 Year Ordeal (4:1-37),
(5) the Fall of Babylon (5:1-31), and
(6) Daniel in the Lion's Den (6:1-28).

The second part of the book consists of a series of visions:

(1) Daniel's Night Visions (7:1-28),
(2) the Vision of the Ram, Goat, and Little Horn (8:1-27),
(3) Vision of the 70 Weeks of Years (9:1-27), and
(4) Daniel's Final Vision (10:1-12:13).

Authorship:

Rabbinic and conservative Christian tradition assign authorship to this book to Daniel, viewing the prophecies contained within it as supernatural, accurate, and historically trustworthy. Some modern scholars, who deny that the remarkable details contained in the work's prophetic corpus could have been the product of supernatural revelation, claim that the book was produced in its present form during the second century, BC, (i.e., after the events predicted came to pass), but modern conservative scholars point to Daniel's remarkably accurate prediction concerning the date of Messiah's appearance to Israel (9:1-27) and his foundation of the Church as the Rock that fills the earth (8:1-27) as incontrovertible evidence that the work was written many decades or centuries before their fulfillment.

Composition Date:

Daniel's prophetic ministry and writing career of about 70 years encompassed the captivity administrations of both Babylon and Medo-Persia, stretching from the first years of Nebuchadnezzar's reign, through the fall of Babylon (ca. 539 BC), and into the early years of Darius the Mede (ca. 535 BC). Portions of this book were composed in Aramaic.

Messianic Hope:

The Messiah as the Ancient of Days
