All my biographers obviosly decided that what I had done before they wrote of me, well, was irrelevent, was un-important since they knew not what nor whom I was.

  1. Being a woodworker I’ve always been fascinate by Joseph being a carpenter, and that he probably trained Jesus in his craft, assuming his son would follow him in his chosen trade. One of the first things I learned when taking Greek is that “carpenter” is a weak translation of τέκτων, which actually means “craftsman” and related to any skilled worker in wood, stone, or metal. Nazareth was in easy walking distance (< 4 miles) of Cana, a major city where craftsmen of any material could easily find work for the day, a skilled one might even find long term employment.
