Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at parsha “Ki Tavo” (Deuteronomy 26:1-29:8) which is again not only ‘meaty’ but downright SCARY to those who don’t like what it says. Which makes it again one of the most important – especially NOW.
The sequence begins with the Erev Shabbat reading, the title part about “when you come” into the land, and then the details of the most well-known set of “Blessings and Cursings” in the whole Book:
There is a segment in this parsha that consists of repeated curses of the form, “Cursed by he THAT…” which turn out to be – or at least once to have BEEN – “things done in secret.” So what does it say that they often are no longer even done in secret, but openly? And taught in the Public Cesspools, even.
Perhaps that is why the other curses seem more imminent, if not already undeniable.
But Mark opens by asking this question…
“Ki Tavo: Are These Curses Really From HIM?”
