11.5  The Prophecy In Hosea “I Called My Son Out Of Egypt”

 

 In the second chapter of Matthew, it is stated that when Jesus was a child the King (Herod) wanted to kill him. So his family took him away from Bethlehem to Egypt, and they waited there until the king die and they left Egypt for their homeland.[1]

 

“That night Joseph left for Egypt with the child and Mary, his mother, and they stayed there until Herod’s death. This fulfilled what the Lord had spoken through the prophet: “I called my Son out of Egypt.” (2:24-15, NLT)

 

Christians says that this episode fulfill the prophecy in the Old Testament book of Hosea:

 

“I called my son out of Egypt.” (11: 7, NLT)

 

According to Gary Miller, the writer (Matthew) actually quoted the sentence out of context. He quoted the last half of a complete sentence. The whole sentence read:

 

“When Israel was a child, I love him as a son, and I called my son out of Egypt. But the more I called to him, the more he rebelled, offering sacrifices to the images of Baal and burning incense to idols.” (NLT).

 

 The reference in that sentence is to the nation of Israel and not to Jesus Christ. Moreover the sentence continue to say:

 

“But the more I called to him, the more he rebelled, offering sacrifices to the images of Baal and burning incense to idols.”

 

 Is that a reference to Jesus, can it possibly be that he was an idol worshipper?[2]
