I just watched the BBC's "Genius of the Ancient World." It looks at Socrates, the Buddha and Confucius. What struck me about Confucius was how "Biblical" he was. I hold the view that the ancient world was not as isolated as we think. We just don't know how much interaction there was among ancient civilizations. I don't doubt for a minute that Confucius, seeking wisdom and knowledge, did not know of the "wisest man to ever live" - Solomon. Since I hold a view that Solomon wrote in the 900's BC and Confucius circa 500 BC, it is likely that Confucius could have come across his writings. At the very least Confucius could have been aware of the Jews and their beliefs.

In my search to compare Solomon with Confucius I came across your blog. I haven't had a chance to read any of it yet (it is somewhere in the top 1000 of things I want to read).

Do you have any thoughts on if, how and why the wisdom of these two men and cultures are so similar?

Is it just "truth is truth" and "wisdom is wisdom"? Or do you suspect some sort of interaction be it through contact or writings?

I don't think so. More likely it was God revealed to Confucius some truths that are in line with biblical teachings. You seem to assume that the virtues of other cultures can only originate from the Jews alone.
