Hosea and Gomer knew each other as children, but life sent them in very different directions with little to no hope of seeing each other again.
Being a prophet, Hosea has heard from God before, but nothing could have prepared him for the strangest message of all: go to Israel and take a harlot for a wife. God wanted to use this marriage as an illustration of his relationship with Israel.
