Title: Die Entstehung der juda-exilischen Hoseaschrift
Author(s): SCHÜTTE, Wolfgang
Volume: 95 Issue: 2 Date: 2014
The book of Hosea was composed a short time after the Assyrian conquest of Israel and by a group of Israelites that had fled to Judah. The kernel of the book comes from a series of critical statements about cultic personnel and Israel's society. The book integrated later reflections on national guilt and tried to infuse religious hope to the Israelite refugees in Judah.
