The Wisdom of Solomon is one of the books of the Greek Bible, included among the Apocrypha in Protestant Bibles. It is written anonymously in Greek between 145 and 50 B.C. in Alexandria, Egypt. The problem investigated in the Wisdom of Solomon was to see from what evil a person is saved, and the goal of this salvation; to determine the fate of the wicked and of the saved after their death; and to discover the relation of these fates to the last judgement. Subordinate problems were studied: Wisdom's original language, authorship, historical background, divisions, purposes, teachings, place in the canon, and relation to the New Testament. [TRUNCATED]
