    This is just what occurs to me - will be interested to see Tikoo Tuba's reply.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    There is a source by extrapolation from 'the parable of the sheep & the goats', Matthew Chapter 25 - anyone that we could help 'is' Jesus -

    Then the King will tell those on his right hand, ‘Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry, and you gave me food to eat. I was thirsty, and you gave me drink. I was a stranger, and you took me in. I was naked, and you clothed me. I was sick, and you visited me. I was in prison, and you came to me.’
    “Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry, and feed you; or thirsty, and give you a drink? When did we see you as a stranger, and take you in; or naked, and clothe you? When did we see you sick, or in prison, and come to you?’
    “The King will answer them, ‘Most certainly I tell you, because you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’


    So a baby is/ represents the Christ Child using the same reasoning.

    I'm guessing AC/DC and Metallica are the only bands that play loud enough for Jesus to hear way up there in heaven?

    Cool

    Everything was unfortunately pre-Mahler except for perhaps the Archangel Gabriel blowing his horn to announce Judgment Day, associating the divine, or infinite, with the finite. Louis Armstrong was waiting in the wings just in case.

    Sorry but Jesus was probably not a carpenter. The Greek word means 'artisan' so he was probably more of a a housebuilder, especially as wood was quite scarce in Palestine, but he might still have had a hammer.

    Perhaps someone should invent a "tektonic" scale?

    I don't know Greek, but this is one thing I found:
    τέκτων téktōn, tek'-tone; ... an artificer (as producer of fabrics), i.e. (specially), a craftsman in wood:—carpenter.

    In the balance is there anti-music ? in literalism , perhaps . I wish Jesus had been portrayed musical , but hey! not even his writings have been presented . Very strange . But , yes , yet we have the music-mind . It's goodness and free . May its blessing be spirit , only for the song of the moment , hoped for again , never expected nor indulgently commanded to be .

    Jesus could have very well been a carpenter. Anyone who who has worked in the mason trades soon learns that a mason can't do much without falsework. Falsework being the supporting framework to hold the structure together before locking the whole together with a keystone and mortar. Also, roofs were made to span across mason walls, usually with finished timbers.

    As a side note, I often chuckle when I see Jesus portrayed in the movies by a willowy actor who's so white that he looks like he spent the last 15 years in a basement! I suspect Jesus is a physically strong man, darkened by the sun, because I believe that he was hefting beams on his back and woodworking in the days before power tools!

    Jesus, who said many times that He is God, created a love of music in me. Its His gift to us, so I suspect that he likes much of the same music we like!

    Psalms 150: 4-6

    "Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord."

This could indeed include carpentry but Jesus was probably employed as a young man helping build the town of Sephoris near Nazareth. You can visit the ruins and contemplate that the Son of God could have walked here and actually helped build the place.
