Chapter Summary

The front matter section of this book Philo of Alexandria an Exegete for his Time contains the table of contents and a preface. The majority of Philo's extant treatises is of expository nature. The analysis of their structures, of the various exegetical forms, and of exegetical methods and terminology used, is only in its infancy. Philo is a representative of Diaspora Judaism and of Judaism as such in the late Second Temple period. At the same time he also illuminates the background and the wider context of the New Testament and the early Church. At some points this perspective is indicated in the monograph.

Keywords: Diaspora Judaism; Second Temple period
