Bits of Torah Truths, The Covenant – Repentance Series, Introduction, Part 8, Repentance and the Love of God by the Giving of His Torah


[youtube url=””]

We are beginning a new Torah series on the Covenant of God, the Repentance Series.  This week’s “Bits of Torah Truths” is an introduction, Part 7.

One might ask, “How are Repentance and the Love of God connected to the Torah?”  The connection is found in the Lord lovingly giving us something to turn towards, to walk in, and to live our lives by.  A way to understand what it means to turn from sin and death unto life which are rooted in righteousness, holiness, justice, and truth.  The challenge for Christians to consider is in the Church’s historical stance toward the Jewish people and the Old Testament (Tanach, ת.נ.ך) as it is related to two thousand years of developed theologies.  According to the Scriptures, the Lord’s covenants and promises to the Jewish people are everlasting; they cannot be revoked, as the Lord has staked his reputation upon their fulfillment.  According to the Scriptures, in both the Tanach and the Apostolic Writings, the Jewish people will forever be God’s people, and the gentiles (non-Jewish persons) are grafted in (Romans 11) to Israel.

While studying the Bible, it is important to take a multidisciplinary approach by considering the history, the culture, the people, and the languages in order to help us understand the Scriptures and how to apply God’s Word to our lives.  MATSATI.COM Teaching Ministry examines the Hebrew Scriptures (Masoretic Text), the Aramaic (Targumim), and the Greek (Septuagint), coupled with studies in the rabbinic literature (Talmud Bavli, Mishnah, Midrashim, with the classical commentators: Rashi, Sforno, Rambam, etc). Our goal is to immerse ourselves in the language, the history, the culture, and the people who lived in the time of Moshe, the Prophets, and the Messiah, in order to deepen our understanding of Scripture, increase our faith, and grow in our relationship with the Lord!

I hope you enjoy this short study.  BBT_Introduction-08-2016

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!
