God reminded them of how He brought them out of Egypt, cleaned them up and made them the jewel that they were.  They turned from Him, so they would be judged.  However, He would make them even better in the future.  Speaking of the future, in what context is Hosea quoted in the New Testament to point out Hosea’s statement doubled as a prophecy?

-Jesus being taken to Egypt as a baby-

-Jesus being baptized foreshadowed by the Red Sea-

-Jesus is the Bread of Life-

-Jesus is the Passover-
