Wouldn't that be sons of carpenters who have high resurrection rates?

That depends on if we're including outliers in our data.

Pretty sure the Bible mentioned the big guy was a carpenter.

Joseph was the carpenter but obvously the Bible shows Jesus breaking away from his Dad's profession to become a wandering preacher. Farking hippie!

That's right. He was an architect, previous to his career as a prophet.

I'm the son of a carpenter, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

Good thing he didn't work for a non-prophet organization. That would screw up the whole New Testament.

If i end up with a deadly disease as a result of working for you then you better get bullet proof clothes cause at that point the law can't do anything to me.

>> My grandfather once said he (Jesus) was the first communist.

I spent 16 years in Catholic schools.

Jesus was to the left of communists.

He told the rich man to give ALL his money to the poor.

Not 30%.

Not 60%.

All.

Your not gonna hear the right wing christian nutbars talk about that too much.

Yes every single person who got lung cancer as a result of asbestos exposure was a smoker...every single one. Smarten Up.

Well I can't recall for certain, but I thought his dad was the carpenter. That would be Joseph, not the big giant head. Can you imagine if he was and you found a piece made by the big JC himself? Oh dude, you'd so make a killing on ebay! Given the state of most people today, you could just find some beat up decaying chair or table and claim it was made by, say wait a miniute ...

Laf, I am not even a Christian, but find this to be pretty far-fetched. The evidence, IMO, is clearly stacked in favor of somebody named Yeshua walking the earth and some collection of people thinking he was a messiah.

What I want to know is : If Jesus was "perfect" and he helped his father in the workshop, where are Jesus' wares?

I mean, a chair designed by someone with no human flaws is bound to be able to withstand time.

Imagine seeing a desk made by Jesus on the Antique Roadshow...

Regardless of its accuracy, it's still funny subby.

Meanwhile, in breaking news, a large majority of Mormon historians and scholars are dismissive of the theory that Joseph Smith was a whack-job conman who just made up all that shiat about the angel Moroni and the golden tablets.

Film at 11.

Jesus was a Libertarian. He advocated private charity rather than government involvement. As evidenced by his instructions to the rich man to give directly to charity, rather than pay 100% of it in taxes, and rely on the government to properly distribute it.

I heard Jesus had intimate relations primarily between himself and a custom built automobile designed to attain high speed.

In His perfection, He knew that an eternal chair would deprive many future carpenters of their livelihood. He understood that furniture shouldn't be eternal -- that the perfect chair incorporates graceful wear over the years.

/or something like that.

So let's see an account from his contemporaries that wasn't penned by a member of the cult that claims he was the messiah. Or some of his own writings.
