Publisher's Description

While it would not be correct to say that Philo's works have been lostscholars have always known and used Philothey have essentially been misplaced as far as the average student of the Bible is concerned. Now the translation of the eminent classicist C. D. Yonge is available in an affordable, easy-to-read edition, with a new foreword and newly translated passages, and containing supposed fragments of Philo's writings from ancient authors such as John of Damascus. The title and arrangement of the writings have been standardized according to scholarly conventions.

A contemporary of Paul and Jesus, Philo Judaeus, of Alexandria, Egypt, is unquestionably among the most important writers for historians and students of Hellenistic Judaism and early Christianity. Although Philo does not explicitly mention Jesus, or Paul, or any of the followers of Jesus, Philo lived in their world. It is from Philo, for example, that we learn about how, like the Gospel of John, Jews (and Greeks) in the Greco-Roman world spoke of the creative force of God as God's Logos. Philo, too, employs interpretive strategies that parallel those of the author of Hebrews. Most scholars would agree that Philo and the author of Hebrews are drawing from the same, or at least similar, traditions of Hellenistic Judaism. With these kind of connections to the world of Judaism and early Christianity, Philo cannot be ignored.

    This review was written for The Works of Philo.
    The works of Philo is a great resource for understanding one perspective on Jewish culture, history, and theology at the time of Jesus. Alongside other sources like Josephus, the Mishnah, the Talmud, and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Philo gives us another glimpse into what first century Judaism was like, which is very helpful in understanding the New Testament.

    This review was written for The Works of Philo.
    In this age of extreme historical scepticism it is good to have the writings of an opponent of Christianity whose writings in some way corroborate the truth-claims of the early Christians, as the writings of Philo do. I find it both fascinating and edifying. As a Christian pastor it helps me to put across the faith better, both to modern sceptics and to modern Christians. It is a witness from the ancient world that we ought not to ignore.
