    Great point! The Lord Jesus did not come to earth to enjoy music and what music he heard would have been that which he heard in passing. A better topic might be (and perhaps more appropriately in the religion subforum) "Would Jesus be pleased with all of my music listening choices?"

    Equally preposterous assertion, imo. But that's just me.

    Jesus was no carpenter. There were no carpenters in Jerusalem during those times, as the builders were all stone masons. (A mistake likely due to the 4 Gospels being written down several decades later.) A connection to stone masonry would fit, as it would put Jesus & his family in close proximity to the Temple, as temple builders, and possibly architects. Nor was Jesus from Nazareth either, as the town of Nazareth didn't exist two thousand years ago. Again, he was probably connected to the Nazarene sect, and the later Gospel writers mistakenly came to associate his Nazarene affiliation with the later town of Nazareth.

    Which is not to say that he wouldn't enjoy listening to Bob Seeger and Lynrd Skynrd...

    I think Jesus would want you to listen to more Sun Ra.

    There's a perfect place in Groups to discuss those issues, but you already know that.

    I think you'll find that the God Squad are highly adept at finding opportunities to shoehorn their lord and master into any conversation.

    I don't know. According to the Gospels he seemed to be too busy to be sitting about listening to music.

    Yes, I agree. Jesus' conception of music (if he had any) would have been vastly different to our sensibilities today. To speculate upon what music he would or would not have enjoyed is inherently a ludicrous proposition. Moreover, as a non-religious person myself, I find it quite a stretch to assume Jesus' divinity would have enabled him to appreciate all music immediately (making this assumption would change the decision-making calculus here employed). Rather, if we are to be able to answer this question at all without assuming some divine ability to immediately 'get' music, I think that the metric by which we measure Jesus' appreciation should be less the quality of the music itself and rather the devotional message contained therein; I choose Gregorian chants because I don't see much that is more austere and pious than that type of music.

    I think there is also a substantial chance that Jesus would not have been impressed by music at all - remember, many religions such as Islam have major issues with music and Christianity too has had an often uncomfortable association with the art form (the Pietists if I recall correctly were very untrusting of elaborate music indeed). Perhaps Jesus would have agreed that anything beyond the simplest forms of music (single human voices and maybe a slight instrumental accompaniment) is unacceptable and detracts from his own message through its own decadent beauty. Or maybe not. We don't know, and never can, because of the nature of the question with which we are presented.

    Whatever folk music which would have been around in Galilee at the time. Plus antiphonal chants perhaps, mainly from Psalms.

    Might not have been too far off from this, although I'm being speculative of course:
