Q&A

Do we have any reason, apart from tradition, to believe Jesus took up Joseph’s trade of carpentry?

Question:

Where did the idea come from that Jesus was a carpenter? My Bible says this was Joseph&#039;s profession and that Jesus was regarded as &quot;the carpenter&#039;s son&quot; (Mt 13:55). Do we have any reason, apart from tradition, to believe Jesus took up Joseph&#039;s trade? <br />
