Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg is an Israeli expert scholar in Early and Modern Church History. Dr. Lizorkin-Eyzenberg has received a fair amount of Jewish and Christian education, both religious and secular. Outside 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 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 the Hebrew Bible and the New Testament scriptures have much to teach both communities. He resides at Israel with his wife and children.
Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg holds an M.Div. degree in Christian Theology from the Reformed Theological Seminary (2000), and M.Phil. degree in Bible Interpretation (2008). He holds a Ph.D. in Ancient Cultures from Stellenbosch University (2011). Additional studies include doctoral and postdoctoral studies at the University of Pennsylvania, Leiden University, Princeton Theological Seminary and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
