A thing that puzzles me: If Jesju was a carpenter then explain the following: I have read much both church approved and other apocryphal or uncanonised texts on the Christ, but never have I read about him ever holding a hammer. Infact, the word hammer isn't used in the whole NT. But I can vividly imagine a hammer being used at the crucifiction....

Yes, it s a history book, but I disagree that it's like any other. Are you aware of any history boo that is 1/3 prophecy that is 100% accurate to date?

I'm not aware of any myself.

LOL, I don't know, it simply says he was a carpenter until His baptism when he began His ministy.

No, he was a "naggar", which may mean both carpenter and teacher. Since Jesju was a teacher in the latter parts of the gospel, people everywhere call him rabbi and rabbuni which are other words which means teacher, I see no reason why he wouldn't have been a teacher also before we meet him as a full blown naggar, in the meaning teacher, not carpenter. Everything he does is teach.

Perhaps, but I doubt it. Jesju wasn't a handyman. He was a handy thinker. A vigillant student of the Law and the Prophets. A guy almost obsessed with Enock's tradition, and a loss in his life, his father died when he was still a kid. The new Josef wasn't entirely welcomed with Jesju in the beginning, it is said that he had to lie face down for quite a while before the young Christ would speak to him. These stories are all around, birds carry them around.

When we first meet Jesju he is a man with a mission, just like when he departs. Somehow, I came to think about the Disney classic with the three piglets and the wolf. School of Mosjeh, sticks, School of Jesju, timber and wood, son of Jesju: Rock and giant pearls and crystals. The New Jerusalem...

Like that:

Carpenter reminds mason. Jesus used some "stone" metaphors. Jesus teached using allegories and gave "pre-digested" wisdom only for the "choosen ones".

What your thoughts on this?


The real question is why did the artist choose to put a compass in his hand. I'm quite sure Jesus didn't pose for the painting.
Perhaps the artist was a mason himself and wanted to put a bit of personal symbolism in there.

Because people were not stupid enough to give 10% of their hard earned money to preachers yet.
