Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa Fellowship for a two-part look at parsha Ki Tisa (Exodus 30:11 through chapter 34) and one of the most”drama-filled” stories in the entire Book. Not to mention ‘fateful,’ and certainly ‘prophetic.’

On Erev Shabbat, Mark summarizes the storyline, and some of the most ‘revealing’ – albeit equally OVERLOOKED – elements of it, which all help explain just WHY this one is sometimes handled with the sunday skool equivalent of ‘kid gloves’. Even though there is at least one “flashing Neon Sign” in there…

During the Sabbath day study, Mark takes a more sober, direct, even blunt look at that part of the “Why?” behind the ‘golden calf’ — and also the ‘why?’ behind the Lies that it obscures.

Given the ‘times and the seasons,’ isn’t it about time to drop the pretense that people doing things that the story of the ‘golden calf’ – and so many OTHER admonitions in Scripture AND history – prove will get them cursed, enslaved, destroyed, and outright killed are, at best, ‘fools’? But there’s far more to it now than that.

“Ki Tisa: Is it ‘Fool’? Downright Stoopid? Or ‘Stiff-Necked’? “
