Aquinas connected scriptures and scriptural theology to his philosophical findings. “Thomas treats most of the major sub-disciplines of philosophy, including logic, philosophy of nature, metaphysics, epistemology, philosophical psychology, philosophy of mind, philosophical theology, the philosophy of language, ethics and. Political philosophy (iep).” He was the most influential contribute to theology and philosophy, as well as placing in his views to connect God in with those two topics.

Former is the substances essence, while the latter is substantial form.
