Watch Dr Duane Miller, The Power of Repentance and Faith: How God Healed Hezekiah and Extended His Life, ישעיהו לח:יא-טז / Isaiah 38:11-16


The rabbinic commentaries on Isaiah 38 discuss how King Hezekiah prays to God for healing from a terminal illness. This study explores how the rabbis interpreted Hezekiah’s words and actions, and what lessons they derived from his story. Some of the topics covered are: The meaning of Hezekiah’s psalm and how it reflects his faith and repentance, The connection between Hezekiah’s illness and the sin of idolatry in Israel, The significance of the sign of the sun’s shadow moving backward as a proof of God’s miracle, The reasons why Hezekiah did not write his own book of prophecies like other prophets, and The consequences of Hezekiah’s request for more years of life and how it affected his legacy and his descendants.

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.
