Parsha “Tazria”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa”

Monday, April 8th, 2019

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a look at parsha “Tazria” (Leviticus chapters 12 and 13).

And for reasons that will hopefully ending up BEING clear, this parsha is one of those that you “may have heard” is now irrelevant, “done-away-with”, and basically not worth studying — but for EXACTLY those reasons is probably more important now than ever, even if not for the reasons we’ve been lied to about.

In the Erev Shabbat review of what that means, the story begins with childbirth, some “not politically-correct” instruction that admittedly can’t be done here in “exile,” and then a litany of what looks like medical text information – but isn’t.

And – in this case, since it’s SO relevant – the recording includes a news summary that helps make that same point, even if “in reverse”.

The Sabbath day teaching is time for a more in-depth look at just WHY something that we’ve “inherited lies from our fathers” about (’cause it’s ‘<em><em>done away with</em></em>,’ doncha know…’) is more relevant than ever, precisely BECAUSE we no longer have that “<em>plague-that-ISN’T-leprosy</em>” (tzaraat) to worry about, or correct us.

And again, this portion touches the heart of so very much that is wrong today, and why. How very much like our Creator to show via His Word that the very things we’ve been lied to told are “done away with” are central to the curses and plagues now running so rampant.

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.
