Starting on May 12, CBI’s Friday Noon Study Group will be exploring the Book of Micah.  One of the twelve minor prophets of the Hebrew Bible, Micah was a contemporary of Isaiah, Amos and Hosea.  He addresses the future of Israel after the Babylonian exile.  Like other prophets, Micah rebuked the people of Judah for dishonesty, idolatry, and corruption in government.   While the book is relatively short, it includes lamentations, a lawsuit in which God sues Israel for breach of contract, prayers of petition and confidence, and a prophecy of restoration that envisions a world at peace.

Our informal discussion group meets every Friday from noon to one in the CBI Social Hall.  All are welcome to join us, regardless of their level of expertise.  Please bring whatever copy of the Bible you might have (the more different translations the livelier the discussion).  If you have questions, please contact Jay Jacoby at jbjacoby@uncc.edu.
