Philo Judaeus, Greek Philosopher
Jewish-Hellenistic philosopher from Alexandria who was educated both in Jewish and Greek tradition.
He held that the Jewish God was the basis of all philosophy, and that God was without attributes and so high above everything earthly that intermediate beings had to interact between Man and God.
These beings he called logos, and they were to be found in the spiritual world of ideas.
"Those who give, hoping to be rewarded with honor, are not giving, they are bargaining"
