Studies on Micah the Prophet

Micha the Prophet

Micah was one of the four prophets who preached in the eighth century B.C. The other three prophets who preached during this period were Amos and Hosea, two prophets who preached in the Northern Kingdom, and Isaiah, who preached in the Southern Kingdom.

Micah was a citizen of the Southern Kingdom. He came from the small village of Moresheth-gath (1:14), located in the foothills of Judah, southwest of Jerusalem. Because Micah grew up in a small village, he was highly concerned with the plight of the suffering poor of Judah and those who were powerless.

The posts listed below reflect Micah’s concern for the poor. His oracles are messages of condemnation and judgment against the rulers of Judah. Micah also preaches a message of hope. He proclaimed that with the coming of the Messiah, the nation would be restored and Jerusalem would be exalted.

The posts are listed according to the dates they were published.
