[image: alt]Loyola School of Theology invites you to the oral defense of
the Licentiate Thesis entitled "Hosea's Marriage Metaphor and Its Influence
on the Covenant Theology of Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Deutero-Isaiah" by Fr.
Adonis Saclolo on March 18, 2016 (Friday), 9:00 am, at the Tipanan ni San
Ignacio, Second Floor of Loyola School of Theology.

The Board of Examiners is composed of Federico Villanueva, Ph.D. (Principal
Examiner), Fr. Manuel Montesclaros, S.J., S.S.L. and Fr. Felipe Fruto
Ramirez, S.J., S.T.D. (Adviser). The defense is being held in partial
fulfillment of the requirements for the ecclesiastical degree, Licentiate
in Sacred Theology (STL) with field of specialization in Biblical Theology.

*Abstract:  Hosea received a very peculiar prophetic vocation:  to announce
the message of YHWH through his marriage (Hos 1-3). Hosea’s marriage is a
vehicle to convey God’s message, his matrimonial life is a metaphor of the
covenant.  Thus, the prophet introduced the nuptial language to Old
Testament Covenant Theology.  This thesis then proceeds to establish the
influence of Hosea’s marriage metaphor to three later prophets: Jeremiah
(chs. 2, 3, 31), Ezekiel (chs. 16, 23), and Second Isaiah (chs. 50, 54).
These explorations are methodologically attempted through biblical theology
and exegesis of pertinent passages from the said prophets, particularly in
their comprehension of the relationship between God and Israel as revealed
by the matrimonial bond. The study concludes by exploring how the OT
covenant in a marital motif deepens our understanding of New Testament
covenant theology, the Church, sacramental marriage and family life.*
