Parsha “Ki Tavo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 2nd, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Ki Tavo,” (Deuteronomy 26:1 through 29:8),

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with ‘ki tavo,’ or “when you have come INTO THE LAND” that Yahuah gives to you…offer up first fruits, and that there is an important declaration to be made. It ends with one of the most vivid descriptions in Scripture of why the “lies we have inherited from our fathers” are so deadly.

This Sabbath Day teaching continues the sequence of ever-more NOT ‘politically-correct’ warnings, arguably BECAUSE the curses that we see coming to a climax of literally “Biblical Proportions” today are PRECISELY what was so strongly warned against!

It’s hard to honestly contemplate what ‘the world’ is doing, and has become, and then to read Deuteronomy chapters 28 and 29 and NOT see the connection. But Mark again asks some uncomfortable questions, and points out that there are things we can and SHOULD do “in such a time as this”. There IS a problem with ‘tolerance’ of Evil, and we must “not keep silent”.

“Ki Tavo”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, September 10th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches parsha “Ki Tavo” this week, from Deuteronomy 26:1 through all of chapter 29:8.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look at an individual confirmation of what was to be said “when you enter the land” at the time of “first fruits”, or Bikkurim, and then followed by one of the most famous, and perhaps blunt as well, expositions of “blessings and curses” in Scripture.

The Sabbath Day teaching touches the heart of how blessings and cursings can be national burdens but individual responsibilities. What does it really mean to say “I profess”…
and what if we just don’t say anything at all?

Just who is the Covenant for, anyway?

“Ki Tavo” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Monday, September 26th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Ki Tavo” (Deuteronomy 26:1 – 29:8).

  • 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 covers what has been called one of the most shocking, distressing, even horrific sections in all of the Torah: a list of curses that could curdle milk. Surely, there MUST be a reason for that kind of threat.

The Sabbath teaching again requires a warning: This time, the content is “adult”, to put it mildly. And many of those at whom it was intended will no doubt continue to ignore the Not-in-the-LEAST-subtle implications.

“Ki Tavo – Can we embrace His ‘joy’ in spite of curses?”

And the more free-form, in-depth, and generally utterly NOT PC teaching from the Sabbath day:

Joy in Tribulation!
What does “bondage” really mean, anyway?
