Abstract:This thesis situates Hosea within the religious traditions of Israel and Judah. A comparative method is used to identify some of the differences and similarities Hosea shares with other Biblical and Ancient Near Eastern texts. The goal is to gain a better understanding of Hosea and the environment that it reflects, that is, Northern Israel. What is clear is that the Book of Hosea contains many distinctive characteristics ranging from the language to the choice of myths and images. This thesis examines Hosea's use of myth and rituals, in particular sacred marriage and the myth of a dying and rising god, and their transformation into literary categories. Many texts borrowed motifs from Hosea, but did not draw from the myths on which Hosea so heavily relied. Further, Hosea seems to surpass other texts in the variety of characteristics that are applied to the God of Israel including husband, killer, healer, and provider of rain. While other texts borrow certain words or phrases from Hosea, they are not reflective of the peculiar language of Hosea with regard to grammar, syntax, and style. Taking into account the variation in the book with regard to cult, ritual, and language, this thesis explores what the implications are for understanding Northern tradition.
