IN other words a deadbeat.
Where in the bible does it actually speak of him doing work?
No, he didn't take money from the government, silly.
He had sponsors who were happy to support him.
A mooch then. Still a deadbeat.
Hitting a lot of nerves with this one usa; Jesus also told us to give to the poor until we ourselves were poor. Try selling THAT to the CONbots
1) He paid taxes in the scriptures
2) He spent years as a carpenter before beginning His ministry.
3) At no point did He take government assistance or encourage anyone else to.
Jesus was an great guy...very fair and very honest...never was greedy...you won't find many like him so don't insult him people
He paid whatever imaginary debt you think he owed his friends with his death.
It says he was the son of a carpenter and that he studied at the temple. Not that he actually worked as a carpenter.
And the correct translation is handyman not carpenter.
There was government assistance back then?
I do admire him for running the money changers from the temple, and he was crucified for that.
His work includes healing lepers, giving sight to those that were blind, straightening crippled legs, bringing back dead children, wiping away tears and fears, and dying on a cross to save souls.
Are you upset that He didn't sling hash at the Jerusalem Diner in His time off?
You forget that he was a winemaker as well.
And fed people fishes and loaves who were too stupid to bring any food with them.
