One of Dr. Eliyahu 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).

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."

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?"

Did Jesus declare all foods clean?

Eliyahu writes, "In Mark 7 we read about a sharp debate between Judean Pharisees and Jesus over the fact that his Galilean disciples did not follow an important Pharisaic innovation introduced long ago."

Eliyahu writes, "The majority of believers struggle with the biblical figure of Jacob when they consider his life in the privacy of their thoughts. The basic question they ask is – how can a thief, a liar and a coward be considered the father of God’s People, Israel?"

The brutal honesty of the Torah

Eliyahu writes, "The Torah of Moses is a brutally honest book. It paints no pretty pictures. It cares nothing for political correctness. It is full of stories where dysfunctional families and tragic events end up playing important roles in God’s redemptive plan."

The lion from the tribe of Judah

Eliyahu writes, "It is likely that Jesus had a text in mind when he was speaking with the Samaritan woman that would help us understand their agreement about the source of salvation being 'from the Jews'."

What was the mark of the Beast?

Eliyahu writes, "To understand the true meaning of the mark of the beast something needs to be kept in mind..."
