Summary

In his works, Philo sought to synchronize the thought of his Hebrew background with Greek philosophy, resulting in a Hellenistic interpretation of the Hebrew Bible, favoring Neo-Platonism and Stoicism in particular. Scholars debate whether Philo influenced St. Paul, who lived during the same time. The connection between Philo and the intellectual leaders of the early church, however, is clear; those he influenced include Justin Martyr, Theophilus, Tertullian, Origen, and Clement of Alexandria. As an essential part of the bridge built to connect Greek philosophy to Judeo-Christian religion, Philo’s works provide powerful insight into the unfolding of religious history.
