Did Philo influence the Bible’s description of the Son of God?

As Christians, we like to think that this message of the only begotten Son of God is unique to the New Testament. It is then a little disquieting to discover that, before the NT was written, Greek philosophy, as interpreted by Philo, a Jewish philosopher who wrote a few decades before the NT was written, also spoke about a Logos who always existed, through whom God created all things, who is the image of God and the mediator between the Uncreated and created. This article shows these parallels and explains why they exist.
