Parsha “Shemini”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Sunday, March 31st, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Shemini” (Leviticus chapters 9 through 12).

And for reasons that will be made clear, Mark refers to this particular portion as one that might represent the heart of “Torah 101”.

In the Erev Shabbat review of what that means, the story begins with the events of the ‘eighth (shemini) day’ and continues to the tragedy of the deaths of Nadav and Abihu after they offer something NOT commanded (aka, ‘strange fire’).

In the Sabbath day teaching, Mark explores in more depth the “Torah 101” aspects of the parsha, and the things that men have said He SHOULD have said, if only He was as smart as they think they are. Ironically, the thing that got Nadav and Abihu killed.

And the rest of the story only STARTS with food. More things that haven’t changed, but will get more people killed. But again, just for starters…

…this portion touches the heart of so very much that is wrong today, and why. It’s at the core of what we need to “come out of” given what He has long warned is coming.

Parsha “Shemini”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 15th, 2018

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa teaches the Torah portion “Shemini” and the many related Scriptures that matter SO much “at such a time as this.”

The Erev Shabbat overview begins on the “Eighth [shemini] day” after the annointing of Aaron as High Priest, or kohen gadol, along with his two oldest sons, Nadav and Abihu, and the tragedy that follows. There are MANY lessons in that, and, perhaps surprisingly to some, the Biblical teaching of what constitutes “food” (and what does NOT) follows immediately. No coincidence…

The Sabbath Day teaching continues with the major themes of the parsha, and the very-much related haftorah segment (from II Samuel 6 through 7:17) and how all of that is SO vitally important, arguably always, but especially now – with a world on the verge of Biblical-level carnage.

Follow along as Mark draws the parallels between Big Lies past and present (“nuthin’ new under the sun”) and how — if even His “annointed” can fall prey to the Capital Crime of doing that which He “did NOT command,” then <em>how much more so</em> those who have been lied to most of their lives about what is “holy,” and what is profane, what is “clean,” or NOT, and even what is <em>FOOD</em>, or not!
