“Devarim” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, August 14th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Devarim” (Deuteronomy chapters 1 through 3).

  • Note: These are available every Shabbat during the on-line services at 6:30 PM Mountain Time, and the Sabbath Day teaching broadcast live via links in both Paltalk and Shoutcheap.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching this week begins the final Book in the Torah, with the ‘pep talk’ that Moses gives to the sons of Israel as they prepare to enter the Promised Land, and literally transition from everything they’ve known for most of their lives — to something VERY different.

And that ought to sound familiar by now.

The Sabbath Day teaching is about that coming “turning point,” then, and NOW.
“Time to STEP UP!”

Parsha “Devarim” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, August 4th, 2014

Join Mark Call for two related, but different looks at this week’s Torah portion, Devarim, which begins the Book of Deuteronomy. This week’s discussion also includes a bit more from the Haftorah as well, in the first three chapters from the prophet Isaiah.

The first recording is the regular Erev Shabbat teaching, from the Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship, and is again an overview of the entire parsha:

The longer teaching from Shabbat concentrates on specifics from the parsha in more detail, as well as the connections to the current “times and seasons”. Given what is happening today, and the context of this Torah portion, perhaps a good subtitle of at least one aspect of the teaching could be, “What? You call THOSE giants scary?”
