Micah was a contemporary of Isaiah and Amos. He joined them in warning Israel and Judah of impending judgment just before the great Assyrian invasion of 722 B.C. which resulted in captivity for the Northern Hebrew Kingdom. Micah showed the necessity of that judgment by picturing the injustice rife in each society, and a religion corrupted by idolatry. While grim warnings of doom dominate this book, Micah foresaw a future restoration of God’s people to their land. This will be accomplished by a Descendant of David, who was to be born in Bethlehem. The coming King will establish God’s kingdom on earth, and will rule it in the strength and majesty of the Lord.
