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

Monday, April 30th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the double-parsha “Acharei Mot / Kedoshim” (Leviticus/Vayikra chapters 16 through 20) — a portion that literally goes to the very heart of the ‘wicked fruit’ that describes why AmeriKa (in particular, but arguably the whole ‘WORLD’) may be in the process (birth pangs, if you will) of being “vomited out”.

The Erev Shabbat overview is again a look at the parsha “in order,” from what happens “after the death” (acharei mot) of Aaron’s two sons, to what might seem to be a disjointed set of miscellaneous statues and commandments that might SEEM like a “shotgun blast”, but do share a common thread. And, again, there’s not only a lot of the NOT ‘politically correct’ in there, but perhaps one of the Most Verbotten passages in the Bible. (It’s probably called a ‘hate crime’ on Kalifornia campuses of Higher Indoctrination if you even quote it!)

The Sabbath Day teaching continues with the major theme of why “boundaries” not only matter, but are being destroyed NOW, for obvious reasons.

Follow along as Mark again “pulls no punches,” and points out why Scripture “love” is properly seen as a verb (known by fruits) as opposed to a ‘feeling’, and twisting the meaning of that word, and the two most important commandments in Scripture as a consequence, are at the root of how evil is being called good.

“Acharei Mot / Kedoshim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, May 7th, 2017

This week, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa examines another double Torah portion, Acharei Mot and then Kedoshim, Leviticus chapters 16 through 20.

AND yet AGAIN, we find another segment in Scripture that we have probably been TOLD is boring, obsolete, irrelevant, and – especially – “done away with,” and again is focused explicitly on the difference between life and death.

This week the Erev Shabbat overview start with what happened “after the death” (‘acharie mot’) of the two sons of Aaron, from the story of the two goats of Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement (yes, it still matters!) to a lot of commandments that the modern world certainly ignores, and we can see both why, and what the consequences are:

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again demonstrates that Torah really IS a matter of “Life and Death.” This time the “view from 10,000 feet” shows us why Mark contends this “double-portion” is literally a look right into why the world is in the shape it is:
