Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at Torah parsha is “Kedoshim,” (Leviticus chapters 19 through 20) and what it means that we should “be
holy” — no, “set apart”, or qadosh — because He is.
And, conversely, why it means when a whole society has become “unholy”. Or, arguably, just set apart to a very different, far more Evil, ‘master’.
The Erev Shabbat reading and outline of the parsha includes the specifics, including some of the most famous (and, as the Messiah points out, at least SECOND most important) in Scripture:
The Sabbath day teaching begins exactly where the Torah portion ends, and current events show to be imperative: Be ‘set apart’ from WHAT?
And why would He AGAIN connect all of that with child sacrifice, and this time around, not only prohibited sexual practices, but outline penaties for them – including death?
And how can we – at the same time even? – rebuke our neighbor, “love” our neighbor, and not “stand idly by” his blood? There is certainly more to this parsha than we’ve been taught.
But most importantly, ‘for such a time as this,’ Mark suggests, is the Truth that is being revealed to those with eyes to see: The Evil that has been unleashed has also be Unmasked.
And we had better be set apart from it.
