Trei Asar I, the “Twelve Prophets,” is a panorama of Jewish history. It begins in the years when there were two Jewish Kingdoms, and the Ten Tribes of the North seemed to be by far the more powerful. It ends with the Northern Kingdom in oblivion, and the Two Tribes of the South, Judah and Benjamin, on the way back to their Land, to build the Second Temple.
The intervening years were a time of strife and disappointment, as prophet after prophet begged and warned, foretold and chastised about the impending doom.
Comparatively speaking, these books are short -- some as short as only a single chapter -- but we should not be deceived by brevity. Like all prophecies recorded in Scripture, they have a message for all generations. And Hosea, the first of the prophets in this Book, was greater than Isaiah, the most quoted of all the prophets.
Hosea’s prophecy is perhaps the starkest, for he condemns his people as God’s estranged wife, and for so doing incurs God’s wrath upon himself. To demonstrate the eternal truth that Israel remains the Chosen People, Hosea is commanded to undergo one of Scripture’s most inexplicable ordeals, a personal torture that mirrors God’s own anguish and loyalty -- an experience that demonstrated the immutable nature of the relationship between Creator and His Nation.
The anthologized commentary by Rabbi Matis Roberts in this volume sheds light on some of the most sublime prophecies in Israel’s history. The Overview is by Rabbi Joseph Elias, one of this generation’s treasures of Torah elucidation. The result is a shining jewel in the crown of commentary that has made the ArtScroll Series a major source of enlightenment to everyone who seeks to understand the Torah as our Sages and teachers have understood it throughout the centuries
