Inhalt

Although Philo was not a Christian, his treatises represent an important tool to enhance our understanding of the New Testament and the development of early Christianity. The aim of this seminar is to acquaint the student with the works of Philo and their significance in New Testament scholarship. Focusing on Luke-Acts, Paul, and the Epistle to the Hebrews, this seminar will explore various important themes in these New Testament texts and Philo within the Hellenistic Jewish and the Greco-Roman contexts. A brief introduction to Philo and his writings will be presented, followed by an analysis on the Jerusalem-Temple motif in Luke-Acts and Philo. This study will emphasize three important points of parallels between the two Hellenistic Jews. Also, Philo and Paul will be compared and contrasted in relation to their views on creation and ethics. The interpretation of Gen 1 and 2:7 in both authors and the three-fold structure of their ethical teaching will be our main focus. The Epistle to the Hebrews is the New Testament book that shows most affinity to Philo’s thought and will have a place in this seminar. Emphasis will be given to the authors’ views on the roles of the Logos and Christ, and the themes of priesthood and dualism.

Overall, the seminar aims to integrate Philonic material into the studies of some New Testament texts. Fresh material will be handed out in class to reflect current scholarship on these important topics.
