This Week’s Christmas Verse – Micah 5:2 – “from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel”

Continuing our observation of the Old Testament prophesies concerning the coming of our Savior, this week’s verse is found in the book of the minor prophet, Micah. This verse speaks to the location in which our Lord was to come as an infant…quite fascinating, actually. Even more fascinating is when we will read verses in the New Testament that show the fulfillment of Old Testament prophesies. I digress, enjoy this week’s verse and be sure to stop by during the week with your thoughts.

Micah 5:2

But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
who are too little to be among the clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
one who is to be ruler in Israel,
whose coming forth is from of old,
from ancient days.

This verse is also timed perfectly for this week’s Christmas article. On Friday we will be studying the significance of the town of Bethlehem. Be sure to subscribe via email below so that you don’t miss it!
