Parsha “Lech Lecha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, October 21st, 2018

Join Mark Call for the first parsha in the lives of the patriarchs, “Lech Lecha,” (Genesis chapters 12 through 17) in which Abram is told to “go forth” out of his home, away from all that he has known, “by faith”…only later to be worthy of being renamed “Abraham”.

During the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark takes a deeper look at why “go forth,” (or “come out!”) should still resonate so profoundly with each of us today, still faced with remarkably similar challenges:

“Lech Lecha – Deja Vu’ (yeah, all over again, only more)”

“Lech Lecha ”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a two-part look at one of the rightfully most famous figures in Scripture, and the first of the Patriarchs — Abram, later Abraham.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching is a look how he is first called (to “come out of” the pagan land where he, and his family, were) and begins to walk the path that leads directly to THE primary Covenant upon which all that follows is based, and leads to his being given a new name, and reputation as the father of nations, and of faith.

The Sabbath Day teaching is all about Abraham’s legendary FAITH, but perhaps in a bit different way than we’ve usually heard it taught. Why is LAUGHTER such a big part of the story? And what does that teach us?

“Lech Lecha – Abraham: Faith and Laughter!”

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Lech Lecha” (Bereshiet/Genesis chapter 12 through 17).

  • 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 teaching tells the story of the first of the Patriarchs, and the promises made through his seed.

The Sabbath Day teaching again addresses the “not-at-ALL-PC” elements of the portion — and their relevance to a world that makes pagan Canaan almost seem obedient — with the parallels between the first of the patriarchs and our situation, from circumcision to Saul (I Samuel 15).
