Bible Study: Micah

December 28, 2018

Pastors Ben Libby and Nathanael Mayhew dig into the prophecies of Micah in the Old Testament. Micah is familiar because of his prophecy of the location of the birth of the Savior which we hear at this time of year, but outside of that, most people know very little about this minor prophet. Micah lived at the same time as Isaiah, just before the destruction of the nation of Israel and was sent by the Lord to both Israel and Judah, to call them to repentance. He would even see the nation of Israel destroyed by the Assyrians, and would use that as a lesson for the people of Judah. Micah also shows that when a nation rejects the true God (theology) their actions decay (morality). You can have no true morality without true theology. While the main message is one of Law and God's judgment against sin, there is also a message for God's remnant people that He will save them. There is more to this book then the prediction of the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem. It is deep and rich. Join us as we study it!
