Parsha “Bo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

This week’s parsha, Bo, (Exodus 10:1-13:16) is best-known as the story of the final three of the “Ten Plagues” (or, the third set of three, plus the unique ‘Death of the Firstborn.’)

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:

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark focuses this time around on the issue of “signs and wonders” — “otot u’moftim” in Hebrew — and why or whether they still apply in this “modern age”. Or, are we again seeing a lot of fake gods and ‘hardened hearts’?

That first Exodus has much to teach us about the next one.

“Bo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

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 www.paltalk.com) 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.
