Dr. Zevit has published studies in almost every major American, European, and Israeli scholarly journal in his fields of interest and his bibliography lists more than 100 publications.
In his first book, Matres Lectionis in Ancient Hebrew Epigraphs, he studied the development of Hebrew spelling in the biblical period. This enables scholars to date ancient writings on the basis of how words are spelled.
In 1998, he published a second book, The Anterior Construction in Classical Hebrew, clarifying problems in the verbal system of classical Hebrew.
The Religions of Ancient Israel: A Parallactic Approach, published in 2001, is a study of popular and folk religion in ancient Israel on the basis of both biblical and archaeological evidence. This book has now entered its third reprinting.
He recently completed a book entitled, What Really Happened In the Garden of Eden?
His current research focuses on how the Israelite religion of the biblical period evolved into proto-Judaism during the Persian and early Greco-Roman periods.
