“B’shalach”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 28th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the story of one of the most famous miracles in the whole Book — the parting of the “red sea” (or Sea of Reeds, take your pick). Perhaps more importantly, there’s a WHOLE lot more to this story, that begins at the end of the plagues, and really kicks off the genuine “exodus”. (Parsha “B’shalach,” Exodus 13:17 through chapter 17)

These teachings are available live each week via Paltalk, in the “Walking Torah with Shabbat Shalom Mesa” room (interactively, via www.paltalk.com) and also simulcast at

The Erev Shabbat overview …

SSM B’shalach 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again continues the recent look at a few of the major ‘themes’ in the story of the Exodus, with a reprise of the concept of the “Minimum Necessary Miracle, and including the idea of “bookends” that might be playing out now, as we look toward the “Greater Exodus,” or Regathering, yet to come…

“Fear not, stand still, and SEE the Salvation of YHVH…”
…THEN pull up stakes, and get movin’.

“Vayigash”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, December 24th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the thrilling climax of at least MOST of the story of the “Suffering Servant,” Yosef/Joseph, and how THE Plan of YHVH continues to play out, with Judah demonstrating what it means to “MAN UP!” — resulting in restoration of the brothers and their houses, lives saved, and — ultimately — a descent into bondage. (Parsha “Vayigash,” Genesis 44:18 – 47:27. And a look at the haftorah in Ezekiel 37, and a bit of Ephesians 5, too.)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is about the final installment of the journey to Mitzraim (Egypt) and the restoration saga, but with a perhaps disturbing implication:

SSM Vayigash 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is focused on a specific aspect of the story of the man who represents a picture or aspect of the Meshiach to come. How is it that the very same man who literally saves the entire house of Israel, and was sent to “preserve life” at the same time looks to his brothers like a pagan, and ultimately initiates a process that leads to bondage?

The answer seems to relate to cycles that repeat, whether we like it or not, and what might seem like a contradiction (Ephesians chapter 5, or Ezekiel 37?) if we don’t look at the ‘bigger picture’ – in context. Especially in a ‘season’ like today.

“Chayei Sarah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, November 12th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a final look at the story of Abraham, and his wife Sarah, but perhaps more importantly at perhaps THE pre-eminient parsha when it comes to ‘Legal Precedent’.    (Parsha “Chayei Sarah,”  Genesis 23:1 – 25:18)

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is an examination of what it literally THE primary story that underlies major concepts of what was once understood to be the Common Law:
Contract, Agency – or ‘power of attorney,’ and Marriage.

SSM Chayei Sarah 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching connects all of that to the lessons of the “Torah Made Flesh,” Who came in His Father’s Name, to DO His Father’s will. How can we possibly know what it means for US each to seek to be a “good and faithful servant,” if we don’t understand the precedents He shows us?

“ChayeiSarah — Legal Precedent, and why it’s ALL about someday hearing,
‘Well done, good and faithful servant’ “

“Noach ”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, October 22nd, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a two-part look at one or two of THE most well-known stories in the Bible. But it turns out there far more that isn’t…

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look at all of parsha “Noach” (Genesis 6:9 – 11:32) — and includes a lot of those parts that are typically “glossed over.”

SSM Noach 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching is a bit different this week: FAR more outright “speculation” than usual. But, sometimes that helpful when it comes to “iron sharpening iron” – so long as we call it what it is, and pay close attention to what IS Written in the process.

After all, if part of the idea is to wrap our heads around what “as wit was in the time of Noah” means, how better?

“Bereshiet ”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, October 15th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa looks at the Scriptures associated with the end of the regular annual Torah cycle, and The Beginning of the next. From “V’zot Ha Bracha,” at the end of Deuteronomy, the time of “Simcha Torah,” is about the joy of this season, and the new beginning as we start — well, CONTINUE, our study into Genesis.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look first at Deuteronomy chapters 33 and 34, which includes both the end of the life of Moses, and the five Books of the Torah as well, and then continues into The Beginning again, into Bereshiet (chapters 1 through part of 6, even).

SSM Vzot HaBracha – Simcha Torah – Bereshiet – 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching is an acknowledgement that there is FAR too much just in the first few characters of Bereshiet/Genesis for a single study, and that’s just the beginning. So Mark focuses on the “WHY?”

Why is THIS portion so FUNDAMENTAL, so vital to us NOW, and, therefore, so reviled by ‘the world’ in general.

We see IN-credible Big Whoppin’ Lies being foisted – from the Very First Two Lies in Scripture, to the rebellion and failure of “covering” and responsibility that accompanied them, to the consequences – which STILL form the basis — the Rock — for all that follows.

“Bereshiet – Why? How else can we build, line-by-line, precept by precept, upon the Rock?”

“Ha’azinu”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 24th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa the next-to-last parsha in the annual Torah cycle this week, “Ha’azinu”, from Deuteronomy chapter 32; aka the second and final “Song of Moses”.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching begins by invoking those SAME two witnesses – heaven and earth – that are STILL around, and still witness that His Instruction has NOT changed. And there’s a warning in here, too, that should sound familiar, even repetitive, but perhaps it’s repeated because it’s still all too often ignored.

SSM Ha’azinu 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching is a look at THE ‘question’ some folks have been asking for months – “do you believe the September 23 end-of-the-world ‘sign’??”

And yet here we are in the beginning of the Fall Feasts – the Moedim of YHVH we have been told to remember and do, as best we can, here in exile – forever. Which ‘signs’ are we going to pay attention to? And do we know the times and the seasons anyway?

Ha’azinu — the REAL signs to watch!

“Nitzavim/Vayelekh”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

This week the annual Torah cycle begins to come to a close, with double-parsha “Netzavim/Vayelekh,” from Deuteronomy 29:10 through all of chapter 31.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching reviews what Mark often calls not only one of his very favorite parts of Scripture, but also perhaps the most “compelling” single chapter in the Book.

And the reasons will be made clear!

SSM Netzavim-Vayelekh 2017 – including Deuteronomy chapter 30

The Sabbath Day teaching is a look at what may be one of the most fundamental issues that those who attempt to “come out of” the Whore Church — and, yes, that’s really the bottom line — have to deal with. What really IS different about a “Hebraic mindset”? And why does that same guy (Paul) who warns us about being fooled by “another jesus, whom we have NOT preached,” also say we need to “work out our own salvation with FEAR and TREMBLING?” It is REALLY possible that we have “inherited lies” after all? And that the solution has been right here, and emphasized in THIS Torah portion, all along?

Nitzavim: THE Big Choice, and
Do NOT Keep Silent!

“Ki Tetzi”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 3rd, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches parsha “Ki Tetzi” this week, from Deuteronomy 21:10 through all of chapter 25.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look at probably THE most “concentrated” group of decidedly NOT ‘politically-correct’ commandments and instructions in the whole Torah. No wonder so many of us have been taught that not only has it been “done away with”, but it didn’t matter anyway.

And the more we hear lies like that, the more important it is to “search out” the Scripture for ourselves, and see what the Truth is.

SSM Ki Tetzi 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching this week continues that theme, and even includes a bit more “Markology” than usual. (In other words, “your mileage may vary”. When it comes to the question of “WHY?” Scripture often gives us a number of dots…Mark’s understanding is one way to connect them. See for yourself regarding the pattern, and the consistency.)

But the bottom line is undeniable, even if most of This World chooses to deny it:

Ki Tetzi: Father Knows Best!

“Devarim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the first parsha from the Book of Devarim/Deuteronomy this week, parsha “Devarim”.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching starts with why these really are THE WORDS that still so much matter to all of us that want to be part of “kol Israel,” and called by His Name.

SSM Devarim 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching begins by noting that Deuteronomy is just plain DIFFERENT from all the other Books in the Torah. And so is this teaching. Admittedly, it’s a bit like drinking from a fire hose, but ‘the Words’ that begin here explain why ‘the World’ so hates them!

Warning: Again, Mark pulls no punches. If we need to explain WHY it’s so important to “come out of” the Whore Church, we must speak the truth “boldly,” as we ought to!

“Chukat”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes a two-part look at parsha “Chukat” (Numbers chapters 19 through 21). Among other things, the confusing “chuk” of the Red Heifer.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark reviews the “whole story,” including the dual themes that really DO form the whole backbone: Death, and why “Because I said so!” means exactly that.

SSM “Chukat” 2017

The Sabbath teaching centers on one of the most confusing, perplexing, and thus often just plain ignored, “chukat” or “statues” in the Book. Mark uses the occasion to “wax nerdy,” but perhaps that’s a good reason not to miss this one. And don’t let the title fool you, all the dots will connect!
