Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa fellowship for a two-part look at parsha “Vayelekh” (Deuteronomy chapter 31 alone) which does perhaps seem a bit ‘short’ for a parsha, but is nevertheless still not at all short of “meaty”.
The sequence begins with the Erev Shabbat reading and the certainly helps to “set up” that claim:
The Sabbath Day ‘deeper look’ involves some words that perhaps just don’t get translated quite properly into English. It’s bad enough to “break” His Covenant, but arguably “a ‘nuther thing altogether” to make it VOID – as if it had never existed.
Not only does that help to at least in part help explain His “anger”, the following exile (still in progress) and why He “hides His face,” it also seems to explain what is now coming to a head.
“Vayelekh: Kazakh! The time is NOW.”
