Rev. Beth Gedert

For the next four weeks we will be reading from the prophets. Prophets in the ancient Afro-Asiatic world were messengers, delivering words from God to the people. Sometimes these are words of warning, sometimes they are words of comfort, usually they are a combination of both. The prophets we are reading from are referred to as the classical prophets. They aren't miracle workers and they speak mainly to the common people, instead of to the king and the power brokers. Sometimes they do strange things, called prophetic acts, to make a point. These classical prophets include Micah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Habakkuk, and others. After King Solomon, the ancient kingdom of Israel split into north with Samaria as its capital, and south with Jerusalem as its capital. This morning we hear Micah prophesying to the southern kingdom after the fall of the norther kingdom. First he warns them that they are no better than their northern relatives, that Jerusalem could be captured just like Samaria.
