Parsha “V’zot HaBerakah”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, September 30th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship in the southern Colorado Rockies for a look at the final parsha in the Torah, and some commentary on the times and seasons of the final days of the Fall Feasts as well: “V’zot HaBerakah,” from Deuteronomy chapters 33 and 34.

The Erev Shabbat overview teaching of the entire parsha, and the cycle begins, is here:

and then the Sabbath Day look at how certain aspects of that ancient warning are not only important, but now closer than ever.

“V’zot HaBerakah: THIS is the blessing, and it didn’t end with Moses”:

Parsha “Debarim”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, July 22nd, 2018

The historic day of Tisha B’Av on the Hebrew Calendar is this week, so the Torah parsha should ‘traditionally’ be Debarim, the first in the Book by that same name, aka, Deuteronomy.

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of that parsha, “Devarim,” (Deuteronomy chapters 1 through chapter 3), where the narrative shifts from “<em>and YHVH said to Moses</em>,” to what Moses himself spoke in the last month of his life.

The Erev Shabbat overview begins with a recap of the journey of the B’nai Israel since their deliverance from Egypt, but largely takes the form of a ‘gentle rebuke.’

There is, of course, a lot more to the story. And in the Sabbath Day teaching, Mark takes a very different approach to that lecture than you may have heard before.

Perhaps even the title sounds a bit “nerdy” — but in this case, listeners will hopefully find the payoff sufficient to bear with Mark through a bit of setup…

“Shemot”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 7th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for the first parsha in the Book of Exodus, by the same name in Hebrew “Shemot”. (Parsha “Shemot,” Exodus 1:1 through 6:1)

The Erev Shabbat overview gives us an introduction to the descent of the descendents of Yakov into bondage, under a pharoah who “did not know Yosef,” and into the first two-thirds of the live of Moshe/Moses as well. (there’s also a major “first proof” up front in there of why the Official Big Brother Approved Romans 13 Bible is so just-plain-wrong, too.)

SSM Shemot 2018

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is about why this “introduction to the Exodus” is SO important, and why Mark suggests (and that’s what a “look ahead” into prophecy and patterns always is, as opposed to ‘doctrine’!) that we may be on the brink of seeing the “bookends” of this story play out. There’s a reason to be excited about the times in which we live, especially if they may be among the most pivotal in all of human history!

“Shemot: Introduction to the Exodus, AND…
…why we are blessed to live ‘in such a time as this‘ “

“Chukat”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Tuesday, July 4th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes a two-part look at parsha “Chukat” (Numbers chapters 19 through 21). Among other things, the confusing “chuk” of the Red Heifer.

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, Mark reviews the “whole story,” including the dual themes that really DO form the whole backbone: Death, and why “Because I said so!” means exactly that.

SSM “Chukat” 2017

The Sabbath teaching centers on one of the most confusing, perplexing, and thus often just plain ignored, “chukat” or “statues” in the Book. Mark uses the occasion to “wax nerdy,” but perhaps that’s a good reason not to miss this one. And don’t let the title fool you, all the dots will connect!

“Vayeira” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 29th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for another two-part look at this week’s Torah portion, which begins the story of the plagues in Mitzraim (Egypt) and all that it portends.

The Erev Shabbat teaching is an introduction to what might well be one of THE most “fundamental” stories, when it comes to understanding all that YHVH “was, is, and will be,” in Scripture:

SSM Vayeira 2017

The Sabbath day is all about why it just BEGINS with “ani YHVH”. How can He REALLY prove that He really IS Who He says He was, is, and will be?

“Shemot” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, January 22nd, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for this two-part look at the first parsha in a new book, Exodus, aka “Shemot” (Ex. 1:1-6:1)

The Erev Shabbat complete story overview:

SSM Shemot 2017

The Sabbath Day teaching addresses the story of so many people in Scripture — especially in this parsha — who “feared God” more than Pharoahs, Popes, or even Presidents, and disregarded the Authorized Clergy Response Team Official IRS-Approved Version of Romans 13 — “as Twisted.”

“Beha’alotcha” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 26th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a study of the parsha “Beha’alotcha” (Numbers chapter 8 through 12).

This week’s parsha marks another clear “turning point” in Scripture. Like the story from the Garden of Eden in Genesis chapter 3, or the story of the ‘golden calf’ at Mount Sinai, it’s a time of leaving, and people being people – again.

The Erev Shabbat total overview again covers the “whole story” – from lighting of the lamps on the menorah laying hands on the Levites, through the story of Aaron, and Miriam’s tzaraas to why Moses just isn’t like other prophets.

Behalotcha 2016

But it’s the issue of prophecy – then and now – and the ‘turning points’ that we face — again, then and now — that go ‘front and center’ during the Sabbath day teaching:

Tests of character – or – what constitutes a ‘prophet of YHVH’?
