Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book God's Acting, Man's Acting contains table of contents, list of abbreviations and introduction about the book. Philo's reference model is the biblical God who acts providentially. He does not con ne Himself to forming the cosmos, but follows its developments, rewarding and punishing as He sees fit. He speaks to Moses, and reveals Himself to the people. The two-fold nature of aspects of the Divine was also to play a role in part of the Middle Platonic tradition, where we find a distinction between a first, immobile God, who is totally transcendent, incomprehensible and unknowable, and a second God who intervenes in the cosmos.

Keywords:God; Philo of Alexandria
