Parsha “Acharei Mot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Thursday, May 9th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Acharei Mot” (Leviticus chapters 16 through 18)

The Erev Shabbat review begins with what happens acharei mot – ‘after the death’ of Aaron’s two sons, and includes the storied reference to the ‘two goats’ associated with the Day of Atonement, or Yom Kippur, and continues through an outline of ‘prohibited sexual relationships’ and other practices for which the inhabitants of The Land were “vomited out”.  As it turns out, more than once, and that continues.

The Sabbath Day teaching explores the implications, and the haftorah (Ezekiel chapter 22) and related Scriptures.  And again Mark draws some connections which a paganized world and its ‘whore churches’ not only ignore, but deny:

“Acharei Mot:  Two Goats – or, the’ Voice is Yakov but Hands are Esau’s’ “



“Yom Kippur”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, October 1st, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches two sessions on the Torah portions associated with Yom Kippur, the “Day of Atonement.”

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching includes a look at several of the references which have to do directly with this, the most solemn day among the Moedim of YHVH, including Leviticus chapter 16, and chapter 23:25-32, as well as some related discussion of the specifics of what we can — and SHOULD — still do, and some of the important elements from that which we can NOT, but will still find understanding from study.

The Sabbath Day teaching continues the theme of the ‘chuk’ associated with the “two goats” and the fact that, often, we are commanded about such a statute without understanding “why?” And perhaps the story of the prophet Jonah’s mission to Ninevah — at least so far as he was concerned — resonates with us similarly today.
