Parsha “Shelach Lekha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 10th, 2018

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for this week’s teaching of “Shelach Lekha,” (Numbers chapters 13 through 15) and the stories of the ‘spies,’ their ‘evil report’, and the subsequent whining (and First Recorded Vote in human history, to boot) that ultimately cost every adult who participated in the spectacle their life.

The Erev Shabbat overview lays out some of the reasons why that is, as Mark again looks at the entire parsha in order, and supports from Scripture why those assertions were made.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week again examines in more detail the primary themes in this parsha — particularly the Big Question, “Who do WE trust?” — and the related lessons that are SO relevant to the very same issues, but perhaps with different giants, that we face today.

“Shalach Lekha”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa takes another two-part look at parsha “Shalach Lekha” (Numbers chapters 13 through 15).

During the Erev Shabbat overview teaching, we see the story of the ‘spies’, and their ‘evil report’, but that is only the beginning of the story and the lesson.

The bigger story has to do with obedience to His Instruction.  Will we allow a ‘majority vote’ to over-ride Him?  When it comes to a series of events that truly make the point about His commandments, and how important they REMAIN, this parsha is impossible to deny.

The Sabbath day teaching looks at the lesson here that is SO clear if we do as the spies were TOLD to do — have “eyes to see,” and LOOK at the whole picture!
