"The Jewish Carpenter"
When Joseph and Mary had done everything required by the Law of the
Lord, they returned to Galilee to their own town of Nazareth. And the child
grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom,
and the grace of God was upon him.
Every year his parents went to Jerusalem for the Feast of the Passover.
When he was twelve years old, they went up to the Feast, according to the
custom. After the Feast was over, while his parents were returning home, the
boy Jesus stayed behind in Jerusalem, but they were unaware of it. Thinking
he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking
for him among their relatives and friends. When they did not find him, they
went back to Jerusalem to look for him. After three days they found him in
the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, listening to them and asking
them questions. Everyone who heard him was amazed at his understanding
and his answers. When his parents saw him, they were astonished. His mother
said to him, "Son, why have you treated us like this? Your father and I have
been anxiously searching for you."
"Why were you searching for me?" he asked. "Didn't you know I had to be in
my Father's house?" But they did not understand what he was saying to them.
Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them. But his
mother treasured all these things in her heart. And Jesus grew in wisdom and
stature, and in favor with God and men.

The Jewish Carpenter
The Jewish Carpenter, of course refers to none other than, Jesus Christ, who was born of the Virgin Mary, and His
father, Joseph, a carpenter by trade. In the New Testament, we find that the townspeople in Nazareth, the city in which
Jesus lived and practiced the craft of carpentry, were very surprised when they learned that Jesus claimed to be the
Messiah. They knew Him as a carpenter, and the son of a carpenter. The question they asked was;
"Where did this man get these things?" they asked. "What's this wisdom that has been given him, that he even does
miracles! Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his
sisters here with us?" And they took offense at him.
Mark 6:2-3 NIV
I would have loved to see Jesus working alongside His father Joseph while living on earth. But I know the greatest wood-
work ever done, was when Jesus Christ willingly put His hands to the Cross at Calvary, and stained it red with His
precious blood for the sins of the whole world! Thank You Jesus!!
The song begins with the violin and cello for the intro, and then with the clash of a cymbal, the tempo begins and the
music transforms into a fun and catchy beat that makes it hard to keep your feet still! The Jewish Carpenter song’s
rhythm and beat was inspired by the Hebrew folk song, Hava Nagila, meaning "Let us rejoice."
