Era of Uzziah and Jotham in Judah

“King Uzziah, also known as Azariah, has reigned over Judah with great success.  But his good fortune is about to go to his head, and he will suffer serious illness for his presumptuousness.  Uzziah’s illness will necessitate a co-regent to run the day-to-day affairs of state.  Uzziah’s son Jotham is a good leader, but he is not the religious man needed by this materialistic, immoral, unjust, and complacent people.”

All quotations taken from The Daily Bible.

 

“When Hosea’s wife, Gomer, consorts with other lovers, she only typifies Israel’s unfaithfulness in playing the harlot with other gods.  And yet, as always, God speaks a message of hope through Hosea.  Just as Hosea redeems Gomer from literal slavery, God stands ready to redeem his people from sin.  And yet this time God will not renew his love so easily as he has in the past.  This time Israel will know real suffering and discipline before being restored to God’s love and favor.”
