“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!

“From Shemot into Vayikra”– teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for an two-part look at this week’s Torah portion, which completes the Book of Exodus, and continues into the first of Vayikra, aka Leviticus, through chapter 5.

This time the Erev Shabbat overview finishes the story of the Mishkan at the end of Exodus, and continues – as does the story – right into the next Book.

The Sabbath Day teaching this week addresses one of THE central conflicts between both of the ‘idolatrous houses’ exiled for rebellion to YHVH, and the idea of ‘sacrifice’ that so often separates them. Both can be wrong, for different reasons. And if we do not understand why Scripture is SO specific about ‘korbon’, and the distinctions, we can – and have – “inherited lies from our fathers.”

“Tzav” – teaching from Shabbat Shalom Mesa, by Mark Call

Sunday, March 27th, 2016

Parsha “Tzav,” (Leviticus chapters 6 through 8) begins with Moshe being told to COMMAND (‘tzav’) Aaron and his sons by YHVH, again concerning “korbon” or offerings, as the previous parsha, but this time with their part of the instruction.

In the first recording, for Erev Shabbat, Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa discusses those differences, and again the concept of “korbon,” as well as the process for their anointing and sanctification as priests (‘cohenim’) of YHVH.

The Sabbath day teaching again starts there and continues to some of the deeper, and even more unsettling questions – particularly on a weekend where paganism proves Yahushua’s repeated point (from Mark chapter 7, et al) that “by your traditions” you have made the “commandments of Yah of NO EFFECT.”  (Regular readers and listeners will already understand why “3 days and 3 nights” could NOT possibly be correctly counted from any “friday” (good, or otherwise) and how the ‘high holy day’ associated with the Feast of Unleavened Bread fits during the week of Pesach/Passover.)
