Philo of Alexandria was a Greek-speaking Jewish philosopher, who is now recognised as the most important representative of Hellenistic Judaism. His writings provide a concise view of the development of Judaism in the Diaspora. His essays seek to synthesise revealed faith and philosophic reason, and Philo is also regarded by Christians as a forerunner of Christian theology.

We invite you to study 2 Samuel with us using the Geneva Study Bible Notes! The 1560 Geneva Bible is known as the first translation to have Bible chapters divided into numbered verses. However, it is even better known for its extensive collection of marginal notes. Prominent Reformation leaders such as John Calvin, John Knox, Miles Coverdale, William Whittingham, Theodore Beza, and Anthony Gilby wrote the majority of these notes in order to explain and interpret the scriptures.

Jewish folklore is full of vivid stories that both entertain and teach. This book is based on tales from the Talmud and Midrash. While some of the themes are familiar from fairy-tales and folklore from other traditions, the stories in this collection are infused with the perennial Jewish struggle for survival and dignity, as well as a large helping of gentle humor.<br />

Customer Reviews
Die Kabbala (wörtlich „die Überlieferung") deutet mit Hilfe von Zahlen- und Buchstabenmagie das Alte Testament über seine übliche Auslegung hinaus. Sie lässt sich unterteilen in die Bereiche praktische Kabbala, dogmatische Kabbala und Kabbala der Buchstaben. Ihr Hauptteil, das Buch Sohar, erklärt die jüdische Mystik und Geheimwissenschaft. Dieses Buch wendet sich an alle Interessenten der Kabbala, die bisher vergeblich nach einer Einführung in die jüdische Mystik suchten. Wenn der Leser in die Grundideen der Kabbala eingedrungen ist, enthält das Buch eine ausführliche Interpretation wichtiger Stellen aus dem Sohar, der Hauptschrift der Kabbala, den man zu Recht als das Herz der jüdischen Mystik bezeichnen kann.

"Philo is one of the great thinkers of the ancient world, yet he no longer remains enigmatic to biblical interpreters. I enthusiastically recommend Rediscovering Philo of Alexandria."<br />Dr. Marvin Wilson, <br />Professor of Biblical and Theological Studies<br />Gordon College, Wenham, MA<br /><br />"Philo proves to be a staunch supporter of the classical approach to biblical characters, immediately and unequivocally defending them and dispelling any possible negative interpretation of their behavior. In situations where such 'mainstream' commentaries as Nachmanides or Rabbi S.R. Hirsch find fault in the behavior of the matriarchs or patriarchs, Philo is quick to defend; in fact, there are many instances in which he inserts a virtuous spin on seemingly neutral situations...Rabbi Leo Samuel has done an outstanding service, both to Philo and to modern readers. In Rediscovering Philo of Alexandria, Philo’s ancient Torah commentary becomes readable and meaningful, exciting and contemporary. I look forward to future volumes..."<br />Rabbi Ari D. Kahn, <br />Echoes of Eden on the Pentateuch <br /><br />The intellectual fecundity of Philo's era was remarkable. He lived at one of the most creative periods of Western Civilization, as two of the greatest traditions--Semitic and Greek--were continuing to winnow the useful insights of their counterpart's teachings, while they refined their own modes of thoughts and religious expression. Philo became Hellenistic Judaism's greatest philosopher and was the first ancient Judaic thinker to compose a commentary on the Torah. His style of interpretation included the exegetical, legal, linguistic, proto-midrashic, and theological strands of 1st century Jewish thought. Reading Rediscovering Philo of Alexandria offers the reader a glimpse into the unknown world of 1st Hellenistic Judaism, which in many ways resembled the Western world we now inhabit. <br /><br />Michael Leo Samuel has meticulously culled from all of Philo’s exegetical remarks, arranging them according to the biblical verses. He provides extensive parallels from the corpus of rabbinical literature, Greek philosophy, and Christian theology in presenting how Philo impacted the great minds of Late Antiquity and beyond.<br /><br /><br /><br />Rabbi Michael Leo Samuel is the son of a Holocaust survivor. He holds two rabbinic ordinations from the Tomchei Temimim Lubavitch Yeshiva of 770 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn and holds a D. Min degree from the San Francisco Theological Seminary. He is an avid student of the Greek classics, Biblical and Talmudic scholarship, Jungian Psychology, Western Medieval Theology, Modern Philosophy, and 20th century psychology. He is the author of The Lord Is My Shepherd: The Theology of the Caring God (1996), Birth and Rebirth Through Genesis (2010), A Shepherd’s Song: Psalm 23 and the Shepherd Metaphor In Jewish Thought (2014), and Torah from Alexandria: Philo as a Biblical Commentator (Volumes, 1-3),(2014-2015)<br /><br /><br />Keywords: Books , Religion & Spirituality , Judaism , Sacred Writings , Torah Bible Study & Reference, Commentaries, Old Testament, Mystical Torah, Middle Platonism, Hellenistic Jewish Philosophy <br />
