Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of author names and terms that are mentioned in the book Philo's Scriptures: Citations from the Prophets and Writings: Evidence for a Haftarah Cycle in Second Temple Judaism. It is indeed remarkable that although Philo has quoted extensively from the Pentateuch, his works contain no more than 46 references to the Prophets and Writings. The author provides a convincing explanation for each one of these citations. It corroborates the thesis that Philo availed himself of lexicographic aids and midrashic material, and further, that even when the language of their composition was Hebrew/Aramaic, he used them in Greek translation.

Keywords: Greek translation; Haftarah Cycle; Philo; Second Temple Judaism
