  Philo, likewise, was plainly embarrassed by some of what he found in scripture. Among the things he particularly disliked, being a devout disciple of Plato, was the notion that God might have a physical body. Thus, Philo read the stories and rules of the Bible as allegories that really taught — surprise! — the philosophy of Plato and Aristotle.

In attempting to reconcile biblical teachings with Greek philosophy he developed ideas that had wide influence on Christian and Jewish religious thought.
