Micah 5-7

  • 5:1-5 – This establishes that the Messiah will come from Bethlehem and will bring peace. This is an important prophecy- there’s no way that Jesus could’ve controlled the place of his birth. Prophecies like this are important because they prove that Jesus was who he said he was.
  • 6:6-8 – Here God makes it clear what he’s asking of his people. He’s asking them to seek justice and offer love and kindness. He is not interested in empty sacrifices.
  • 6:9-16 – Here God explains the punishment that is to come for those who have no obeyed him.
  • 7:18-20—Micah’s prophecy ends with a hopeful message
