Teachings from Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the “ULB Final Day”

Sunday, April 28th, 2019

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship takes a look at teachings associated with the final days of the Passover feast and the last Sabbath of the week of Unleavened Bread.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark examines the traditional parsha for this week, from Exodus 13:17 through 15:26, that tells the story of what happens AFTER the plagues, up to the crossing of the Sea of Reeds. In other words, the end of the ‘exodus proper’ and the Beginning of the real journey:

This week continued the escalation unparalleled turmoil in the world, to the point where the war against those who seek to follow YHVH and His Word — or even pretend to, in too many cases — has become undeniable, except among those who deceive for ‘another master’.

There IS a war in progress, on many fronts, and it ‘sure as heck ain’t holy’. But all of that, in conjunction with ‘such a time as this,’ and the lessons and reminders of this very season, have much to teach us, and much to warn us about. In the special Sabbath Day teaching for this final part of the week of Unleaved Bread, Mark’s message is entitled:

“UN-holy War and the Greater Exodus”

The combined teachings for both sessions are up here, and available for download, as well as via the Hebrew Nation page.

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.
