Hi all,

In response to a question a student of mine asked, I'm trying to learn
how much, if at all, Plato may have been aware of anything from the
Old Testament.

Does anyone here know:

1) if Plato expressly mentions anything from the Old Testament, and if
   so, what?

2) if Plato obliquely refers to the Old Testament?

3) where I might find more information about this?

Many thanks.

-Joel
