Few people in the West are aware that 500 years before Christ was born, a man lived in China whose teachings are uncannily similar to those of Jesus. His name was Mozi. The Chinese Philosopher may have been a disciple of Confucius. If so, he soon became his opponent.
The teachings of Jesus are very similar to Mozi's ideas.
Jesus may well have been a Jewish scholar who learned of the teachings of Mozi. Was Jesus copying Mozi? We don't know. What we do know is that Moism (Mohism) shares many parallels and similarities with Christianity as it is taught today.
