Zvi Revelson, Ph.D
"Excellent courses and two very motivated and interesting lecturers who are open to all course related questions and go out of their way to provide or look up a convincing answer."
"I have been enrolled in this program for 2-3 years. I have learned so much about the Israeli people, the culture and geography of the land, that I actually feel closer to Yeshua. All of the instructors are very good at instructing the class. They are organized and timely. Most are patient when teaching English speaking students. The administrative staff are pleasant to speak with and help resolve issues quickly. The Tech staff are knowledgeable, personable, professional and very patient when working to resolve computer issues. They don't give up on people, like me who are technically challenged (lol). I would definitely recommend IIBS to family, friends and anyone searching for a deeper meaning to understanding the Bible."
"The Bible based education is systematic, structured and well connected with the original text sources. The teachers and the material are pedagogic. It´s of great help to read and repeat the lessons on-line. I feel priviledged to follow the courses, and wish I had known about them earlier.. "

A Few Words About Me

“Treat His will as if it were your own will so that He will treat your will as if it were His will.”

Zvi has lived in Israel for over 20 years immersing himself in the religion, culture, and language of the Holy Land. This experience enables him to pass along his perspective to his students, especially as it relates to understanding the cultural, social, historical, and language aspects of various texts.


Zvi holds a doctorate in Rabbinic Midrash from the University of Texas at Austin. His dissertation deals with the rabbinic understanding of ontological Torah in the opening sections of the midrashic text, Bereshit Rabbah, and the possibility of a latent retort to Christianity’s understanding of Jesus as it is presented in the Prologue to the Gospel of  John.

Professional Experience

Zvi gives a course, “From the Jewish Jesus to Christianity”, at the Hebrew University’s International School, which examines the Jewishness of Jesus from numerous aspects, and the cultural, social, theological, and historical elements that led to his becoming the object of faith in Christianity. Zvi also gave a private seminar to International School students on the principles of Rabbinic Midrash. In addition, he taught Biblical Hebrew for 11 years at an American institution in Jerusalem.
