    Jesus is one of the most famous winos I know.
    Nothing wrong with it.

    That story about having experience in carpentry sounds a little suspicious. Back in those days tools would have been awfully expensive and custom made. How would he have afforded them without a Jerusalem Home Depot to offer a low price guarantee? And where are all those things he made with these tools? Does anyone have a table with the initials "JC" carved into the underside?

    Someone should ask these questions at the nursing school interview. Every applicant has to be screened regardless of background.
    Whaddya talkin' about?? His Dad gave him the tools when he retired!! Heck, those tools are over 2,000 years old, can you imagine him on that PBS show about rare Antique finds?

    "Well, Jesus, this hammer dates to about, well, has to be a few years before you were born so, what, 5 B.C.?"

    Jesus: "Yes, Kurt, I think that would be about right.."

    "So this could easily be worth over 35 million dollars on the open market, Jesus. What a marvelous find! Not to mention it may be priceless as it was crafted by the Son of God's StepDad. Just amazing!"

    Jesus: "Wow, that's neat, Kurt"

    Announcer: "Another spectacular find here! You just never know what priceless antiques you may have in your home!"

    I just kinda picture him sitting at the bar with all of us at T.G.I Fridays (or Nick & Jimmy's in Toledo) just relaxing and laughing about silly stuff. I just think he'd be a cool guy, not uptight, and can be lighthearted at times.
    Not if he was mandated overtime and couldn't join us! LOL

    The replies,so far,are very interesting. Many reveal the repliers theology as to who jesus or god is or they reveal the unbelievers view.

    Would any one be interested in pursing a talk about the existence of God or who Jesus was on another thread? I personally love talking about that kind of stuff.

    God does not exist. Man exists. God is eternal (always has been, always will be).

    Well, since He is Jesus, I suppose He could do anything He wanted to do. I'm sure He'd tell the moneychangers how wrong they are. Then He'd go raise all the dead that had been caused by the short-staffing. He could take a huge patient load because instead of running them all over the hospital, He'd just heal them, and I'd be happy to do His paperwork for Him to keep the government-types happy. It isn't a question of whether or not He's employable, but that He'd put Himself out of a job by healing everyone.

    LV, l think you are soooooo right about this, AND...this would be the very reason that l believe most churches would reject Him, not even recognise Him................most churches would "church" Him.

    I just read every answer here and enjoyed them all. To be serious though, my own work is supported by my attempts to conform myself to Jesus. Nursing is spiritual and corporal works of mercy. Love is a verb.

    Hey -- we are overlooking something here. Jesus is from Nazareth! He would have to get into the US for any of this to happen and I am wondering how he is gonna get a passport these days?

    Good point! Coming over here on a one-way ticket. Middle eastern descent. The FBI would be all over him. How would he be accepted now that profiling is allowed?
