Bits of Torah Truths – New Gentile Converts were to Keep Kosher before Learning the Rest of Torah – Episode 49

Acts 15:28–29
כח נִרְאֶה לְרוּחַ הַקֹּדֶשׁ וְלָנוּ שֶׁלֹּא לְהַטִּיל עֲלֵיכֶם שׁוּם מַעֲמָסָה נוֹסֶפֶת מִלְּבַד הַדְּבָרִים הַנְּחוּצִים הָאֵלֶּה׃ כט לְהִמָּנַע מִזִּבְחֵי אֱלִילִים וּמִדַּם, מִבְּשַׂר הַנֶּחֱנָק וּמִן הַזְּנוּת. אִם תִּשָּׁמְרוּ מֵאֵלֶּה תֵּיטִיבוּ לַעֲשׂוֹת. שָׁלוֹם לָכֶם.״

Acts 15:28-29
28 For it seemed good to the Holy Ghost, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things; 29 That ye abstain from meats offered to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication: from which if ye keep yourselves, ye shall do well. Fare ye well. (KJV)

This is a very important observation in Acts 15:28-29. Here we are told how New gentile converts were to keep kosher before learning the rest of the Torah. Note that these things listed in Acts, foods offered to idols/eating blood/eating things strangled/sexual immorality are all part of kashrut. (Shemot / Exodus 20:3, Vayikra / Leviticus 7:26, 17:12, 22:8, Devarim / Deuteronomy 14:21)…

Dr. Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. 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.
