"Go, marry an unfaithful woman."
Not exactly the assignment you want to hear from God. Yet it was what God asked Hosea to do, giving the prophet a unique understanding of what God was experiencing as his people turned away from him and worshiped false gods.
Then God gave him messages for his unfaithful people--messages of warning and caution, messages hinting at redemption and grace, messages spoken to beckon them near to their husband-God. They were messages that made a big deal of a big love--a love too jealous to tolerate competition.
In Jealous, Rebekah leads you through a Bible study of the book of Hosea and then recounts her personal stories of grace that are stirred from the Scriptures. The study will take you through each chapter of Hosea, engaging first your mind, then your heart, and then your hands. Following the study portion Rebekah tells of how God has rescued her and redeemed her own heart through the ups and downs, joys and pains of marriage, motherhood, and ministry. She will invite you to study God's Word hard, for much more than an emotional fix or better self-esteem. Through this study, you will learn to consider who God is as husband-God and who you are as the unfaithful wife whom he married with eyes wide open.
