Architects Now Have New Reason to Feel Self-Important

New, 11 comments

A new book, The Jesus Discovery, disputes the fact that Joseph worked as a carpenter. Now there's speculation the father of Jesus worked as an architect or builder. "...[author] Dr Adam Bradford concluded there had been a mistranslation and that the Greek word 'tekton'- which describes Joseph's work- more accurately means master builder or architect. Dr Bradford claims this would explain why Jesus, who would have been brought up in his father's trade, made so many references to building in his teachings." [Telegraph]
