Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches parsha “Ki Tavo” this week, from Deuteronomy 26:1 through all of chapter 29:8.
The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look at an individual confirmation of what was to be said “when you enter the land” at the time of “first fruits”, or Bikkurim, and then followed by one of the most famous, and perhaps blunt as well, expositions of “blessings and curses” in Scripture.
The Sabbath Day teaching touches the heart of how blessings and cursings can be national burdens but individual responsibilities. What does it really mean to say “I profess”…
and what if we just don’t say anything at all?
Ki Tavo: Individual vs National
Just who is the Covenant for, anyway?
