    He turned water to wine and made one loaf of bread feed the hungry minnions....I would say YES, HE would be employable.....He would be regarded as "weird, new age or out there" but then, who is not anymore?

    FOR THE RECORD, Jesus was a carpenter. He took up the trade from his father, Joseph. Two of his disciples were fisherman.

    The book of John, in the New Testament (the books after the Old Testament), if I am correct, gives more of what Jesus did before and during his ministry.

    Yep, dual careers inherited from both his fathers. Thanks for clearing that up, I thought it went something like that.

    Thanks Vegas. You are striking my memory.

    Val, yes I was referring to Joseph his "father" here on Earth. LOL! So no I don't think they met on the job. I think they met in the manger.

    Huh? Jesus basically had TWO: Joseph as his father here and God obviously who is THE Father.

    Yes, I think he'd make an employable nurse, and a darn fine one--who wouldn't want the Son of the Great Physician at their side

    That is what I meant by dual careers inherited from his fathers: he got the carpenter gig from the earthly father and the religion gig from the heavenly father.

    No, Jesus is NOT employable.

    First thing, the media swarms and talking heads controversies would be considered "distractions" by management.

    Next, the instantaneous healing and joy in the hospital would be met by bean counter fury over lost revenue and lawsuits from disgruntled family members that mom or dad didn't die after all.

    The government would be trying to kidnap Him for testing and warfare / weapon use / experimentation, covert ops.

    Human Resources would have Security escort Him out of the building for dress code and OSHA violations.

    The Political Squad would blackball and blacklist Him for suspected consciousness and conscience-raising and maybe even Unionization.

    And this would all be in just the first 1/2 hour ...

    I don't know about this career change for Jesus. He might have a problem treating the female patients.

    Then too we might ask...

    "Could he work a 12-hour overnight shift?"

    "Would he be able to accurately calculate med dosages and dispense them instead of merely turning an arbitrary quantity of water into wine?"

    "He usually interacts in a one-to-one exchange. Can he regularly handle a 1:10 ratio while working?"

    Well no, not really. Jesus was often teaching large crowds.

    Ya know, Sister Mary Rosemary, my teacher at old St. Dominic's could be rolling in her grave right now. "Sacrilege!" I can hear her scream.

    Just like when she put me in the corner for using the Lord's name in vain when I said, "Oh my God!" and taped a sign on my back saying "BLASPHEMER". As if a 7 year old is supposed to know what that meant!! :chuckle
