Ziony Zevit (born February 13, 1942) is an American scholar of biblical literature and Northwest Semitic languages, and a professor at the American Jewish University.
Zevit received his B.A. degree from
University of Southern CA in 1964, and Ph.D. degree from University of California, Berkeley in 1974. He joined the faculty of American Jewish University in 1974.
Zevit was awarded a
Guggenheim Fellowship in 1994.
In an article published in 2001,
Scott F. Gilbert and Zevit argue that the Bible might be interpreted that Eve was not made from Adam's rib, but his baculum; which would explain why humans don't have one. Zevit's article published in  in 2015 Biblical Archaeology Review presents the same theory and attracted certain public attention.
