One of Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg's greatest passions is building of bridges of trust, respect and understanding between Christians and Jews, overcoming centuries of difficult, but almost always joined history. He strongly believes that both Hebrew Bible and the New Testament scriptures have much to teach both communities. 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).

The match made in heaven

Eli writes, "In an early interaction, God told Moses that He will send his angel to guide Israel along the way. The people of Israel were warned not to disobey God’s messenger, because he would not forgive their transgressions. (Ex. 23:21)"

Gospel in the Hebrew Bible?

Eli writes, "One of the most important words in the New Testament is εὐαγγέλιον (euangelion). It is usually translated as “the Gospel”. Its literal translation is simple..."

Rethinking Jesus’ words from from the Hebrew original

Eli writes, "If we take the time to compare the original verse Jesus was reciting from Hebrew, a simple, but significant insight into the words of Jesus on the cross will emerge."

Was Paul right about women?

Eli writes, "Paul’s solution, therefore, was not to exclude half of the congregation from exercising the gifts of the Spirit, but rather to make sure that it was done in a respectful, proper and orderly fashion."

Why was Paul against circumcision for gentiles?

Eli writes, "Circumcision was and remains one of the most important markers of Jewish identity. It testifies both to Israel’s trust in God regarding its future and to God’s promise justifying that trust."

Who said to hold all things in common?

Eli writes, "But how did this practice begin? In other words, based on what did they conduct this communal lifestyle in Christ Jesus? The Torah, with all its care for the poor and needy (Lev.23:22), does not ever talk about shared property."

Who was the first Comforter?

Eli writes, "On one occasion Jesus made a curious promise to his disciples. He said: “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Comforter” (John 14:16). This implies, of course, that he himself was the first Comforter. But why did he phrase it this way?"

If you are the Messiah, tell us clearly!

Eli writes, "This text is most often read as an instance of Yeshua’s general lack of clarity on the topic. However, the request should not be read..."

The Jerusalem audit

Eli writes, "To put it simply, it was implicit in the committee’s questioning that John had no authority to carry out this mass Israelite water ceremony."

Did Jesus know the future?

Eli writes,"On one occasion Jesus gave orders to Peter and John to prepare for the Passover ahead of the disciples’ arrival: 'Enter a city, then look for a man carrying a jar of water. Follow him and ask the person in charge to offer hospitality.' This is exactly what happened."
