Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for an two-part look at this week’s Torah portion, associated with both “Shmini,” (Lev. 9-11) and the issues surrounding the week of Pesach/Passover.
This time the Erev Shabbat overview includes the story of Aaron’s sons Nadav and Abihu, their offering of “strange fire,” and subsequent deaths, as well as the necessity to discern the difference between the clean and the unclean.
NOTE: Since some have requested to be able to download the Erev Shabbat audio as well as the Sabbath Day teaching, it will be linked in a separate podcast to follow:
The Sabbath Day teaching this week starts with the importance of that discernment — between the “holy” and downright abominably “profane” — and explores the reason why “Easter” can NOT be pleasing to Him, whether we feel good about pagan traditions or not. Turns it, it really IS a matter of “life and death.”
