A Pesach Haggadah for those who desire to have a Pesach (Passover) meal at their own home inviting friends and family over to celebrate the death, burial, and bodily ressurection of Yeshua (Jesus) in this time of year.  The biblical festival of Pesach (Passover) is the festival our Lord and Savior Yeshua (Jesus) celebrated and so we too are to celebrate this festival with joy and thanks giving.  Note that Easter is not a biblical festival, it is a pagan holiday related to the fertility religions (male and female dieties) that was adopted instead of the Pesach (Passover) celebration due to antisemitism of the Jewish people.  Therefore,  celebrating Easter instead of Pesach (Passover) is a sin according to the Word of the Lord (the Scriptures, Bible)!

Pesach is the oldest and most important of religious festivals in the Torah, commemorating God’s deliverance of Yisrael from slavery in Mitzrayim (Egypt) and the creation of the nation of Yisrael (the Israelite people).  According to the Scriptures, Pesach marks the beginning of the religious year (  ספר שמות פרק יב א   וַיֹּאמֶר יְהוָֹה אֶל-מֹשֶׁה וְאֶל-אַהֲרֹן בְּאֶרֶץ מִצְרַיִם לֵאמֹר: ב   הַחֹדֶשׁ הַזֶּה לָכֶם רֹאשׁ חֳדָשִׁים רִאשׁוֹן הוּא לָכֶם לְחָדְשֵׁי הַשָּׁנָה: Shemot / Exodus 12:1 Now the Lord said to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, 12:2 ‘This month shall be the beginning of months for you; it is to be the first month of the year to you. (NASB) note that as a result of changes in calendars, later Judaism observed the beginning of the year in the Fall with Yom Kippur and Rosh Hashana).  Pesach is based on the rituals of ancient Yisrael preserved in the pages of Scripture found in Shemot / Exodus 12-14 where Yisrael celebrated their deliverance by God from slavery in Mitzrayim.  The term Pesach (פסח) refers to the tenth and final plague God brought upon Mitzrayim that caused Pharaoh to let the people go (the death of all the firstborn of Egypt).  In obedience to God’s instructions, those who believed in the Lord placed the blood of a lamb on the door posts (Mezuzot) of their homes, so that God would “pass over” those homes.  The festival celebrates the sequence of events that led to the Yisrael’s being freed from slavery and actually driven from the face of the people of Mitzrayim.  The celebration of Pesach encompasses much more than simply the celebration of deliverance from Mitzrayim.  Pesach becomes a way to celebrate the very nature of God and His gracious work in the world and in our lives.  It is in this larger dimension that Yeshua the Messiah adopted the Pesach service as a remembrance of God’s new work of deliverance in Mashiach (Christ), and allows all believers to celebrate this ancient festival giving glory to God and the greatness of His love for us.

Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
