“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.)

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!

“Tetzaveh/Zachor”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for an in-depth look week’s ‘combo’ Torah portion (parsha “Tetzaveh”, Exodus 27:20-30:10, and a bit that goes with the haftorah and Purim).

The Erev Shabbat summary includes the first description of the ‘priestly garments,’ and what sets them apart.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week is quite a bit different than usual, too, in that Mark doesn’t tend to spend too much time on holidays that aren’t “moedim of YHVH.” But – especially NOW – perhaps there’s a LOT more to the Book of Esther and Purim than usual that we simply can’t afford to ignore. How much of Amalek is now Amerika? And can we afford to keep silent, or is it perhaps our blessing to be put here “for such a time as this?”
