Eli Lyzorkin-Eyzenberg

    Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg is an Israeli scholar of Christian and Jewish Literature. He hosts a popular Jewish Studies for Christians, an Online Study Group. At eteacherbiblical.com, he holds the position of scholar-in-residence. As co-founder of the Jerusalem Seminar for Christian-Jewish Relations, Dr. Lizorkin-Eyzenberg conducts inter-disciplinary research (the seminar is hosted by Van Leer Jerusalem Institute.)

    Dr. Lizorkin-Eyzenberg has received a fair amount of Jewish and Christian education both religious and secular. He holds M.Div. degree in Christian Theology from Reformed Theological Seminary (2000), and M.Phil. degree in Bible Interpretation (2008) and Ph.D. in Ancient Cultures from Stellenbosch University (2011). Additional studies include doctoral and post-doctoral studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Leiden University, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

    Outside of his expertise in the ancient languages (Biblical Hebrew, Koine Greek, Syriac and Old Church Slovanic), he has a command of three other modern languages (English, Russian and Hebrew). One of his greatest passions is building of bridges of trust, respect and understanding between Christians and Jews, overcoming centuries of difficult, but almost always joined history. Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg strongly believes that both Hebrew Bible and the New Testament scriptures have much to teach both communities.
