In the Old Testament Scriptures are found the writings of the prophet Micah. Though he lived in Judah, he was one of God’s servants to the nation of Israel [Northern kingdom] prior to her captivity. His prophecies were profound in that he not only exposed the present injustice and idolatry of the people, but he proclaimed the birth of the One who would ultimately offer salvation to all mankind through His death, burial and resurrection.
