WEEK 25: GOD’S LOVE FOR HIS WAYWARD PEOPLE
The Kingdom of Israel under King Jeroboam II was extremely wealthy, strong, and expansive. It looked great from the outside, but inside idolatry was taking over and society was decaying. The prophets Hosea and Amos list the sins of the people and attempt to bring them to repentance. Hosea describes them as an adulterous wife who God intends to heal of her waywardness and love freely once again. This episode complements the daily readings from our Walk Thru the Bible reading plan for July 19-25, covering 2 Kings 14-15; Hosea; Amos; Isaiah 1-6.
Walk Thru the Bible: ‘Of Kings and Kingdoms’
We are finishing up the first quarter reading for Walk Thru the Bible, which means we’ve already walked through one-fourth of the Bible together. And what a journey it has been so far! We certainly have been impacted by this experience, and trust you are too.
Walk Thru the Bible’s first three months have set the stage, and the events which will soon unfold are the climax of the story. In May, we begin with David’s rise to the throne and cover his reign as well as his successors, through to the divided kingdoms of Israel and Judah.
So download your printable Walk Thru the BIble Reading Guide and get ready to continue this journey with me, which is transforming our lives…one page at a time! Invite your friends and family to join us. I can’t wait to continue this Walk Thru the Bible with you!
