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).

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."

Torah and Gentile Christians

Eli writes, "The day has come. A special assembly has been convened by James in Jerusalem. Luke describes an impressive group of Judean, Galilean and Diaspora-based elders and apostles that have been persuaded that Jesus is indeed Israel’s Messiah."

The Biblical Hebrew compass

Eli writes, "In English, these words are technical navigational terms, but Hebrew is an extremely physical language and the origin of these words is tied to the environment."

Did the Jews reject Jesus?

Eliyahu writes, "Most modern Christ-followers mistakenly think that the New Testament states that the Jewish people rejected Jesus... But is their reading of the New Testament itself accurate?"

Unless you go with us

Eliyahu 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."

Did Peter live as a gentile?

Eliyahu writes, "As part of his argument, while admonishing Peter to live in accordance with the Gospel, Paul stated that he (Peter) while being a Judean, “lived” as a member of the nations and not (uniquely) as a Judean (Gal.2:14)."

Unless you hate your father and mother

Eliyahu writes, "There are certain texts in the Bible that make modern Christ-followers cringe. Among the most difficult is the statement of Jesus about hating one’s father and mother in order to be his true disciple (Luke 14:26)."

The forgotten rule of Paul

Eliyahu writes, "When asked, almost no one in the Christian world can answer this simple question. What very important rule did the Apostle Paul set in all his congregations?"
