Join Mark Call of Shabbat Shalom Mesa for a discussion of the two-part ‘Double Parsha’ that wraps up the Book of Exodus. “Vayakhel, then Pekudei,” Exodus chapter 34 through the end of the Book).
What does a wise heart have to do with what much of xtianity calls a really boring part of Scripture that’s been “done away with” anyway? The answer goes to the very heart of what is wrong with a ‘church’ that denies His Word, yet claims He dwell in hard hearts that have no place for Him.
The Erev Shabbat overview of what exactly it is that the last part of Exodus describes being made, and why, introduces some perhaps uncomfortable parallels.
The combined part 1 and 2 files for both sections are up here, and available for download and off-line listening:
