Micah 5 Study

Note to leaders: As with all studies, please don’t feel you must cover all questions, fine if you can, but ratherĀ take a few of the questions and do them justice that rush through šŸ™‚

If you missed the sermon, you can pick it up here: The King from eternity

  1. Verse 1 seems at complete odds with the rest of the chapter, what isĀ Micah pointing to (cf. 2 Kings 25?);
  2. Bethlehem was a tiny hamlet, what else do we know about Bethlehem from the bible? Also, why would God chose Bethlehem and not Jerusalem?
  3. At the end of verse 2, consider what it means: ‘whose origins are in the distant past’. How should this impact a) our understanding of who Jesus is, b) ourĀ view of creation, c) our reading of the Old Testament?
  4. Discuss verses 3-9, what are these verses pointing to?
  5. Verses 10 to 14 at first glance look like moreĀ judgement, but are they?Ā  – if not what are they about – if so how does it fit with the rest of the passage?
  6. Who is the last verse addressing and at which time?
