“Bemidbar” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 12th, 2016

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa as we begin the study of a new Book, Numbers in the English, but “Bemidbar,” or In the Wilderness, from the Hebrew (Numbers 1:1 through 4:21).

And it starts with a “head count”, and continues through the what and why of the Levites who “take the place of” the firstborn. During the Erev Shabbat overview, Mark takes a look at the specifics, and why these numbers should give us an insight that buying into the lie that ‘the Law is done away with’ will NEVER provide:

This time the Sabbath Day teaching goes even further afield, and certainly even more politically INcorrect, than even the numbers themselves reveal. There is a VERY good reason that when YHVH commands a census, He is counting “Who is Mine!” and why we need to understand exactly what that means:

“Counting, numbering, registering, voting, and OWNING“

Torah portion “Shoftim”

Monday, September 1st, 2014

Join Mark Call for two related, but different looks at this week’s Torah portion, Shoftim, from Deuteronomy 16:18 through 21:9. This week’s portion focuses on the concept of “Justice”, and provides some incredible insight, generally overlooked in today’s “post-Biblical” world.

The first recording is the regular Erev Shabbat teaching, from the Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship, and is as usual an overview of the entire parsha:

The much longer teaching from Shabbat concentrates on a major theme from the parsha in greater detail, and even more than usual this week in connections to the current “times and seasons”.  The contrast between <em>”Justice, JUSTICE! you shall pursue,”</em> and the “Greater Babylon Metro Area” has never been more stark.
