Parsha “Vayeira”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, January 6th, 2019

This week’s parsha, Shemot, (Exodus 6:1-9:32) is best-known as the story of the first two-thirds of the “Ten Plagues”.

But there is far more to the narrative than just what children are told in “sunday school,” or saw in a famous movie.

Join Mark Call first for the Erev Shabbat review of the whole story, beginning with the importance of His Name, which is NOT to be hidden, and about which the entire Book is centered! The essence of the “Exodus” is to understand what Yahuah Himself said He would PROVE: “Ani YHVH!”

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark takes a deeper look into just some of the many intriguing patterns in the sets of plages. Yes, they are judgments on the many fake ‘gods’ of the Egyptians. Yes, there’s MUCH more to the issue of Pharoah’s “hardened” heart than we’ve generally heard. But it’s the part of the pattern that is and will be repeated during the Greater Exodus still to come that is being set out today.

“Bo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the conclusion of the story of the ‘Ten Plagues’  (or 3 x 3 + 1) that begins the story of the Exodus. (Parsha “Bo,” Exodus 10:1 through 13:16)

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

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with the final two plagues in the “three sets”, locusts, and darkness which can “even be felt,” and culminates with the unique, separately-prophesied death of the firstborn. Oh, and there’s a pretty detailed description of the “prototype” — the first Pesach (“Passover”) — in there, too, even though much of churchianity prefers to ignore the part where He says, over and over even, to remember it, teach it, and keep it, “throughout your generations,” as a “chukat olam,” or statute forever.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again examines in greater detail just a few of the major ‘themes’ in this parsha, from those final plagues to at least a few of the concepts in the haftorah (Jeremiah chapter 47)…
…to the somewhat fascinating idea of darkness which can even be felt. And if that sounds like something that may have more than just “metaphorical” significance today, you’ll enjoy this discussion.
