Bits of Torah Truths, New Torah Series — The Torah and the Gospel Message


The new Torah series is about to begin!

The nature of reality for the individual relies heavily upon one’s presuppositions that have led over the centuries to controversial philosophical judgments and assumptions as they are related to biblical interpretation. This then leads to all sorts of doctrines that are difficult to sort out.  The less aware we are of the underlying presuppositions and philosophical assumptions, the more these things control our way of thinking and interaction with the Scriptures. We need to be aware of this in order to understand what God wants from us as this is related to being faithful to the Living God in Heaven. Sorting these things out however requires careful effort. As we study the Torah and the Gospel Message, we will begin to encounter the different theological systems that are in place and try to keep an openness to God and His Word in a way that is not limited by the presuppositions we have been taught over the years and centuries.  Join us as we journey through the Torah this coming year and explore the intimate connection between the Torah and the Gospel Message.

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. The studies developed for MATSATI.COM are freely to be used by everyone, to God be the Glory!
