Parashat Vayera, The One whom Avraham is speaking to.


Bereshit / Genesis 18:1 Now the Lord appeared to him by the oaks of Mamre, while he
was sitting at the tent door in the heat of the day.  18:2 When he lifted up his eyes and looked, behold, three
men were standing opposite him; and when he saw them, he ran from the tent door to meet them and bowed himself to the
earth, (NASB)
The significance of these opening passages to Parashat Vayera Bereshit / Genesis 18:1-22:24 revolves around the
question of whether or not the One whom Avraham speaks to is the eternal Almighty God and what are the implications for
our understanding of Yeshua the Messiah.  In our study for this week, to determine the answer to the question of
who Avraham is speaking to we will be looking at Ginsburg’s Masoretic text and the Greek Septuagint (LXX).

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.
