INTRODUCTION TO THE BOOK OF MICAH

Micah ministered for approximately 25 years (at the same time as Isaiah), spanning the time when Israel was conquered by Assyria. He mentions the sins of both Israel and Judah and implores the people to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God (6:8b). The prophet has made great impact in many generations even as great lesions are attained from this book. Micah's ministry began during the fall of Northern Israel at the hands of Assyria, around 722 BC, and continued through Hezekiah's reign in the Southern Kingdom, until about 700 BC.

BOOK SUMMARY

The book of Micah alternates between oracles of doom on Judah and Israel for their idolatry and social injustices and of future hope because of God’s covenant mercies. Having witnessed God's judgment upon the Northern Kingdom, Micah warns Judah that she is in danger of the same catastrophic demise unless her people seek the God of their forefathers in a real and meaningful way. If they do, God will surely protect them from such an end, but even if they refuse God will continue to seek them and restore them after they are judged for their sins. 

Themes: 

Judgment: God has given us many examples of people who refused to repent of their wicked ways and brought God's wrath upon them. Micah uses one such event to teach and warn his people about the very real possibility of it occurring to them. 
Hope: God continues unwavering in His commitment to His people even when they rebel.
Experience: Micah calls on Israel to be observant to what God is doing around them, to learn from it and apply it to their own lives.
Religion vs. Faith: Micah teaches us that our faith is not mere ritual or outward conformity to certain rules, but is an inward disposition toward God.

WHY SHOULD I STUDY THE BOOK OF MICAH?

 Unlike the Book of Jonah, which took the burial and resurrection of Jesus for Israel to make sense out of what had occurred, Micah’s reference to the Messiah was quite explicit. From the time he verbalized God’s rebuke at the way the Jews were treating the poor until the time a poor carpenter and his fiancée arrived in Bethlehem, devout Jews knew that King David’s birthplace was where the Messiah would also be born. Micah wrote the following about the town of Bethlehem seven hundred years before Jesus was born: “Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of you shall come forth to me the One to be Ruler in Israel, whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting” (5:2). And of that Ruler, he prophesied, “He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths. . . . Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore” (4:2, 3).
