Hi Wireloop:

yes, I've made a study of Philo and of Plato's dialogues. Their influence upon the making of the New Testament is enormous. Philo's thinking about the Logos lies behind the Prologue of the Fourth Gospel, although he would have been freaked out by the idea that this Logos, by which the spiralling galaxies were made, could have been contained in one historical human being of flesh and blood. Plato, like Pythagoras, and many Greek thinkers, went to Egypt (Philo, of course, flourished in Alexandria, in Egypt) and was greatly influenced by what the priests there taught him. Platonic thought, in turn, influenced the whole of Hellenic religion, which in its turn, greatly influenced the entire Greco-Roman world, especially the formation of the mind of St.Paul. His epistles (the authentic ones) are pure Hellenism. The point of The Pagan Christ is that Christianity owes everything ultimately--via a mixture of Judaism and Hellenism--to ancient Egypt.
