Gomer’s marriage to Hosea is one big, real-life parallelism of God’s thoughts and feelings about Israel and Judah at that time. Hosea was a prophet whom God spoke to about his frustration with Israel’s worship of baal and unfaithfulness to him. He considers Israel to be like his wife, for whom he provides abundantly, but […]

The story of the Samaritan woman is quite the incredible one because she was chosen to be the gateway through which many more Samaritans would come to believe in Jesus. It was no mistake, her testimony was what brought many Samaritans into Jesus’ fold. Now in those days, Jews did not associate with Samaritans. They […]

The story of Deborah and Jael is intertwined with that of a man named Barak. As was the pattern in those days, the people of Israel would forget their God and sin against him. He would then hand them over to foreign rulers who ruled them with harsh cruelty and made them suffer. In line […]
