Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa Fellowship for a two-part look at the FINAL parsha, Pekudei, (Exodus 38:21 on) in the Book of Exodus.
It begins with an accounting of the work on the mishkan, or tabernacle in the wilderness, and ends with SO many references to what seems to matter so much — “as Yahuah commanded Moshe,” so he did.
And then the very presence of Yah was a constant, visible presence before all the house of Israel, for all their journeys.
First, the Erev Shabbat overview:
We should certainly not be surprised. But in what may be not only the most tumultuous time in our lives, but in American history, Scripture has much to tell us. Even if – as Mark contends this week – this parsha deals with a time “on the opposite half-cycle” from what we face:
they had just been delivered from bondage, had a leader of the stature of a Moses, and the visible presence of the One True Elohim to guide them. In so many ways, a world so richly deserving of His judgment seems to face something more like the opposite.
But that is PRECISELY the time when lessons like He teaches here are most vital.
