-Micah'​s geographical location, or his home, was in the small town of Moresheth in the Southern Kingdom. Specifically,​ Moresheth lay on the border lands between the Philistines and Judah, approximately 25 miles from Jerusalem. Micah refers to Israel being in the north and Judah in the south. This shows that the prophecy from Micah was for //all// the people of Israel. The place Micah grew up had a huge influence on who he became, and why he believed what he believed. Moresheth was something we would refer to as a "​country town", a place out in the middle of nowhere. Moresheth was located outside of the governmental agencies that governed Israel. He knew what it was to live a poor meek life. His ministries especially focused on the lame and persecuted- those who could not defend themselves. While his background directed the focus of his ministry, his background also influenced the direction of his message. Micah preached to the powerful leader- the kings of Sameria and Judah. ​+Micah'​s geographical location, or his home, was in the small town of Moresheth in the Southern Kingdom.
