Zola Levitt, a Jewish Christian thoroughly educated in the synagogues, came to know Jesus Christ, the Messiah, in 1971. As the head of Zola Levitt Ministries of Dallas, Texas, he produces a weekly 30-minute television program, "Zola Levitt Presents," which is aired on hundreds of TV stations. The focusses of the ministry are evangelization of the Jew and understanding prophecy with literal Bible interpretation focusing on the infallibility of scripture, salvation through Christ alone, an imminent pre-tribulation Rapture of all believers and the establishment of the millennial kingdom of Christ on Earth.
Levitt specializes in teaching people about the Bible from a Jewish perspective. Most of his interviews are particularly directed to the studies of Israel and prophecy. He takes very seriously the principle outlined in Romans 1:16, “To the Jew first and also to the Gentile."
Levitt has hosted more than fifty trips to Israel, Egypt, the areas of the seven churches, Mediterranean islands, European capitals, etc. He also publishes a monthly newsletter, the Levitt Letter. Through the vast mailing list of the ministry, Zola and his staff are privileged to serve readers in each of the fifty states and many other places around the globe.
Zola Levitt Ministries offers a correspondence course entitled The Institute of Jewish-Christian Studies, which teaches the Jewish roots of the Christian faith. Thousands of students have availed themselves of this opportunity to learn about a topic seldom taught.
Levitt has a Ph.D. in music, from Indiana University, and is the composer of more than 200 spiritual songs. His two musicals, Beloved Thief and Mine Eyes Have Seen, have been televised nationally. He is also a prolific author with more than fifty books published in several languages. His books range in topics from Jewish fiction love stories to breaking down the prophetic connection between Israel and the current state of the world.
“Coming: The End! Russia & Israel in Prophecy” (with Dr. Thomas S. McCall)is an updated release of “The Coming Russian Invasion of Israel.” This basic book of prophecy analyzes the world situation in surprising terms. One chapter, A Strategy for Unbelievers, even tells unbelievers how to cope with the Tribulation Period. In reference to this book, Hal Lindsey claims that it is: "A must for everyone who wants to know where we are on God's timetable."
And, of course, no review of prophecy would be complete without an in depth discussion of the Rapture of the Church. In “Raptured,” Levitt compares the various views of when it might happen in an even-handed debate as to which seems most Biblically accurate. The Rapture is a doctrine seldom fully understood and often the cause of disagreement. Here, Levitt treats the disagreements fairly and gives the reader much to consider.
