Micah 5:2. This prophecy of the Messiah’s birthplace was fulfilled in Luke 2:4–7. See also Matt. 2:4–6; John 7:42.
The evidence of biblical prophecy has been a key to unlock the door to many a skeptic. Those who take the time to study messianic and other prophecies, knowing that the dates of the Old Testament Scriptures can be authenticated, can only come away with the knowledge that the Bible is a supernatural Book. However, always keep in mind that knowledge of the Bible’s inspiration will not in itself bring a sinner to the foot of the cross. There must also be a knowledge of sin, which comes by the Moral Law (see Rom. 7:7,13). This is why the apostle Paul “explained and solemnly testified of the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus from both the Law of Moses and the Prophets” (Acts 28:23).
Micah 5:2“But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, Though you are little among the thousands of Judah, Yet out of you shall come forth to Me The One to be Ruler in Israel, Whose goings forth are from of old, From everlasting.”
