“I spoke to the prophets;
it was I who gave vision after vision:
I declared my mind through them.”
Hosea 12.10 REB
REB interprets the third line, which NET reads as “I spoke in parables through the prophets.” The revelation throught the prophets, like Hosea, was one of judgment and repentance.
God continues to communicate to us today through the prophets and inspired apostles, whose writings are contained in the Bible. We must give even greater heed to them, now that Jesus has come.
