In Response To: Greek Philosophy is Stolen Egyptian Philosophy (Saadia Khan)

The world has seen a great many comings and goings with different peoples conquering others or visiting other lands for trade etc. Persian, Greek, Egyptian, and Hindu cultures have aspects of each other’s beliefs and practices.

One thing that proves this amalgamation of thoughts and ideas is the writing of Philo of Alexandria [20 BCE – 50 CE] who was a ‘mystical’ Jewish writer heavily influenced by the Greek Sophia, Wisdom. All things came into existence because of this Wisdom. And what should we find in the ‘inspired’ Gospel of John from the New Testament (written/copied around 100 AD in Alexandria!!!!), yes, the infamous Word of God becoming flesh:-

Index: King James Version John 1
1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.
1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Try telling that to an Evangelical Christian!
