The Conceptual Coherence of the Book of Micah (Journal For The Study Of The Old Testament Supplement Series)

Mignon R Jacobs

Hardback 2001-01-01

Publisher Description

Micah has two parts, each a dispute about Israel's fate. The coherence of Micah lies in its view of Yahweh's justice in judgment and mercy as the main factor in Israel's fate. This book examines the coherence of the book of Micah by means of analysis of the text's literary structure and conceptuality. A two-part structure is proposed, divided between chs. 1-5 and 6-7, each part characterized by a dispute over the fate of Israel. The interrelationship of the parts, including prophecies of judgment and announcements of promise suggests that the basis of the book's coherence is that Yahweh's justice in judgment and mercy, preserving and forgiving the remnant, are the significant factors in determining Israel's fate.
