Hoshea (high priest)
From CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science
Hoshea (Hebrew: הושע, Hōshēaʻ; "Salvation") (ca. 726/5724 BC
3279 AM–fl. 695/4693 BC
3310 AM–677/6 BC675 BC
3328 AM) was the twenty-fourth high priest of Israel. Flavius Josephus and the Seder 'Olam Zuṭa each call him by a variation of that name.
Hoshea became high priest a few years after Manasseh became king. Manasseh had a reputation for killing innocent people, and Azariah III might have been one of his victims. Hoshea appears to have made no protest when Manasseh undid all the reforms of his predecessor, Hezekiah.
