 +Hosea was the son of Beeri (1:2) and was the author of the book of Hosea. It is thought he was a citizen of northern Israel.  ​The name Hosea means "​salvation"​. In obedience to God's command, Hosea married a prostitute named Gomer, the daughter of Diblaim (1:2-3). He fathered three children [Rose Publishing]. According to Bob Utley, the consensus has always been that Hosea was the author, although little is known about him.

 +Hosea is not mentioned in the Old Testament outside of two times in the book of Hosea (1:1,2). However, the Apostle Paul mentions the book of Hosea in Romans 9:25

 + It is said that Hosea started his prophetic career during the reign of King Jeroboam II (793-746 ​B.C.) [Rose Publishing]. Norman Geisler states that some of the book of Hosea seems to be written before the death of Jeroboam II, since chapter one regars the end of Jehu's dynasty as yet the future. He further suggests that the final product ​of the book of Hosea no doubt was completed around 720 B.C. "His Ministry extended from at least 760 to 710 B.C. (2 Kgs. 14:​17)."​ [Norman Geisler]

 One of the pictures of Hosea is God’s love for us. He loved us so much, that He also bought us out of slavery by dying on the cross for us.  One of the pictures of Hosea is God’s love for us. He loved us so much, that He also bought us out of slavery by dying on the cross for us.
