§ 27. Supposed Influence of the Alexandrian—Jewish Doctrines.

A few words in regard to the supposed influence of the doctrines of the Alexandrian Jews upon Christ’s culture. Even admitting that these doctrines penetrated into Palestine, it can by no means be presupposed that they entered into Galilee, and especially into the narrow circle of the common people within which he was educated. The grounds on which some profess to find traces of such an influence in the discourses of Christ would serve as well to prove that Christianity derived its origin from Brama or Buddhu.7878   Cf. my Kirchengeschichte, 2d edit., Part I., for the relation between the Alexandrian theology and Christianity.
