Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary Definition of Truth:
Conformity to fact or reality; exact accordance with that which is, or has been, or shall be. The truth of history constitutes its whole value. We rely on the truth of the scriptural prophecies.
Hosea was written eight century BC; however this prophecy has double meaning. First it is the literally meaning of when Israel was first called out of Egypt, and second it is a picture of Jesus and His family fleeing Herod to Egypt. This prophecy demonstrates God knowing all the details of things to come. It also demonstrates Ecclesiastes 1:9 that states, “What has been will be again.”
HEBREWS LEAVE EGYPT BEHIND
Hos 11:1 “When Israel was a child, I loved him, and out of Egypt I called my son.**
ESCAPE TO EGYPT
4 BC (U)
Mat 2:15 where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.”
