The relationship between Hosea and Jesus is this: Jesus died for all mankind while mankind was living in sin (wrongdoing). He did not wait for mankind to stop sinning (mankind couldn`t stop sinning). But He came and died for all mankind in spite of his sin-and for his sin. He died so that mankind could know God and go to Heaven. Jesus is the Savior for mankind just as Hosea was a "savior" for Gomer.
Furthermore, mankind still goes astray and does wrong things. Yet, Jesus forgives and reaches out to mankind in many different ways. He always accepts back the sinner, the person who has done wrong, if the person will come back to Him willingly.
Hosea is a picture of God`s love for mankind. It is called redeeming love.
