Parsha “Shemot” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

Join Mark Call for two teachings on this week’s Torah portion, “Shemot” (Exodus 1-5).

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, (Friday evening) Mark introduces the new Book, and the importance of the “Names” theme; no, it’s not just the first few verses.

The longer teaching from Shabbat, however, is really one that deserves an introduction:

Yes, buckle up!

Not only is this parsha an unequivocal rejection of the “Romans 13 Lie” taught by far too many 501c(3) faith-based Caesar-chartered corporate churches of another god — it’s a powerful refutation of what the Unholy New World Church-State Partnership is doing right now to a people who have forgotten His Written Truth.

Parsha “Vayashev” teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, December 15th, 2014

Join Mark Call for two teachings on this week’s Torah portion, “Vayashev.” (Genesis chapters 37 through 40).

During the Erev Shabbat teaching, (Friday evening) Mark covers the entire parsha — the first part of the story of Joseph, who might even be called the “Transition Patriarch.”

The longer teaching from Shabbat again focuses on several of the broader messages pervading the portion. One might be the ‘unifying underlying theme’ of the story of the patriarchs of Genesis, but the even bigger questions probably have to do with “His Plan” — and what our own choices have to do with it.

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?”
