In this work, Daniel Amari examines extensively the main candidate backgrounds for the Logos of the Prologue of John. The author demonstrates that the doctrines of John concerning the Logos are not derived from Greek philosophy, Philo’swritings, nor second temple literature. But they are derived exclusively from the Old Testament. John’s Logos is the embodiment and fulfillment of Jewish Scriptures concerning the Son.
Dr. Amari examines the book of proverbs chapter 8 to shed light on the identity of Christ and his role in creation.
