520BC Zechariah, Buddah and Confucius

It would appear that in 520BC Zechariah, Buddah and Confucius were all engaged in their work.  Which one brought people back to God?  Who said ‘Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you’ (Zech 1:3).  Who had an idea of God’s standard (the measuring line) Zech. 2?  Who saw a man’s filthy garments changed to festival robes (Zech 3 – Darby trans. – from our own righteousness to God’s)? And which could speak of the sons of oil (Zech 4 – the limitless supply from God’s Holy Spirit)?

These two wise men from the East were no more than that – giving good advice – but none changing the man which cannot be improved, however much men try!
