Discussion for Micah 5

  • kind of complicating
  • Is this saying Isreal will defeat Assyria? That hasn 't happend yet, has it?
  • Rev. Autrey
    (Micah 5:2)Again, that Micah says that Jesus is from the distant past is a clue to his identity as God. His existence is similiar to how we are aware of our own personalities. That is, if I am aware of myself as a certain person, then that certain person or personality is me, completely and fully. This is how Jesus is completely and fully God. This is the most important revelation of Jesus' identity God will ever give us!
  • Rev. Autrey
    Verse 2 speaks of Jesus as Gods persona or personality. God spoke to us through himself Jesus in the distant past. And he speaks to us this way now. "Jesus Christ, the same yesterday, today, and forever." "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end,says the Lord God. I am the one who is, who always was, and who is to come, the Almighty One.
  • Muhindo joel for verse 2
    God's way of doing things is quite different from what human beings think, He chooses from whom he wills.God decided to get a saviour from a minority tribe and from a place not thought of and this was to be a ruler of israel.
