The Prophet Micah

Russian icon of the prophet Micah


The prophet Micah, who prophesied during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, is largely remembered in Christian circles for his prophesies about the coming of the church and the Messiah's birth in Bethlehem.  One cannot forget, however, that the prophet spoke judgment upon both Samaria and Jerusalem.  However, the prophet concludes his work in climatic fashion as he recalls the great forgiveness of YHWH.
