Plato presents his ideas through a three-way discussion involving an Athenian stranger, a Spartan named Megillos and a Cretan, Clinias, as they are traveling to the sacred site of the cave of Zeus on the island of Crete.

I would imagine that the men God used to write His word were ALL influenced by the world around them to some degree, but bottom line is they were ‘inspired’ by God himself and His word clearly holds within it’s pages evidence that I believe proves. The Idea Enters Judaism, Christendom, and Islam (‎7 occurrences) “By creating a unique synthesis of Platonic philosophy and biblical tradition,” says the book Heaven—A History, “Philo paved the way for later Christian [as well as Jewish] thinkers.”.

Philo felt that this was in agreement with Plato. But this is not a reflection of the Platonic idea that the immaterial is the real realm and this is not earthy. In Hebrews it talks of the mercy seat (ἱλαστήριον) and the only other occurrence of this term is in Romans where it speaks of Christ as our propitiation.

Plato and the Creation of the Hebrew Bible () by Russell Gmirkin establishes the claim that the Pentateuch (and essentially the entire Old Testament) was written simultaneously in Hebrew and Greek in about BC (in Alexandria at the library) by (about 70) /5(4).

Nonetheless, in terms of philosophy, Christianity does share some important features with Plato. The New Testament writers believed that we remain conscious after physical death (e.g.

Philippians ), as Plato did. The Bible rejects atheism and materialism, as Plato did. Both believed in a supreme beneficent reality. Both believed that the. The early Christian church was heavily influenced by Plato, and the effects of Plato’s teaching can still be seen within Christianity today.

In this Book he concentrates on the most literary and intense kind of exegesis - the use of language. He admits that there is more than one true interpretation of language (for he has accepted figurative interpretation, which, by its very nature, must have more than one.

Several dialogues discuss ethics including virtue and vice, pleasure and pain, crime and punishment, and justice and medicine. Plato views "The Good" as the supreme Form, somehow existing even "beyond Era: Ancient philosophy.

Plato and the Creation of the Hebrew Bible for the first time compares the ancient law collections of the Ancient Near East, the Greeks and the Pentateuch to determine the legal antecedents for the biblical laws.
