Chapter Summary

This chapter explains that Philo understands the blessing of the nations in Abraham to refer to the gifts of God, which he bestows upon the whole world through the agency of wise men who have a relationship with him. It evaluates whether or not Philo believes these wise men to be exclusively Jewish or not, and in the course of this discussion the author comments upon his attitude towards proselytes. Philo quotes Gen 12:3 in only three passages, all contained in the treatise De migratione Abrahami which concerns itself with Abraham's departure from body, sense perception and self in his quest for knowledge of God. Before analysing Philo's interpretation of Gen 12:3 in De migratione Abrahami, the author concentrates first upon Philo's construal of the term blessing, in the context of his discussion of Gen 12:3. The author focuses upon his interpretation of Gen 12:3 in Migr. 109-127.
