Dr. Eli Lizorkin-Eyzenberg is the dean of Jewish Studies at eTeacherBiblical: Israel Institute for History, Language and Holy Land studies. He holds M.Div. degree in Christian Theology from Reformed Theological Seminary (2000), and M.Phil. degree in Bible Interpretation (2008) as well as Ph.D. degree in Ancient Cultures from Stellenbosch University (2011). He is the author of popular Jewish Background of the New Testament online courses and the host of Jewish Studies for Christians, with more than 45,000 study group members worldwide. He regularly lectures in colleges and universities in Israel and abroad. 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. He does not think that New Testament needs to be rewritten, but that it needs to be carefully reread. He lives with his wife Marina and his children in Herzeliya, Israel.
The Jewish Gospel of John is not, by any standard, another book on Jesus of Nazareth written from a Jewish perspective. It is an invitation to the reader to put aside their traditional understanding of the Gospel of John and to replace it with another one more faithful to the original text perspective. The Jesus that will emerge will provoke to rethink most of what you knew about this gospel.
