- From Ancient Greek λόγος (lógos, "speech, oration, discourse, quote, story, study, ratio, word, calculation, reason"). (Wiktionary)
“Philo used the term logos more than thirteen hundred times in his writings that are still available for us.5 The Logos is the instrument of mediation for a transcendent God who—following the Greek philosophers—was pure spirit being who was unable to have contact with the physical universe he had created.”
“There is disagreement about exactly what Heraclitus meant by using the term logos, but it is clear from”
“It appears that he took the concepts of speech, ratio, and intelligence that were all contained in the word logos and personified them in his use of Logos as a technical term.”

“Similarly, such a Gentile and a Jew would have noticed a similarity between Philo's use of the term logos, and John's.”
“Philo, Ronald Williamson tells us, used the term logos "very frequently", but "partly because the ideas it was used to express are difficult and complex ones, and partly because Philo's own thought is also profound and complex, it is difficult to give a clear and coherent statement of Philo's thought in this area".”

“Behind our English term word lies the Greek word logos.”
