    Jesus wasn't a carpenter he was the son of a carpenter no where in the bible does it reference him as being a carpenter. He was a teacher a rabbi and the messiah as christians believe anyway. A carpenter is a profession we know Jesus wasn't sent here as a carpenter even though he may have been a handyman his father Joseph was indeed a Carpenter.

    Mrk 6:3, Is this not the carpenter, the son of Mary, and brother of James and Joses and Judah and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended by him.


    nowhere huh?

    That is taken out of context as Jesus never referred to himself as a Carpenter ... If you look in the new testament Jesus is referenced as a Rabbi/teacher several times not once but SEVERAL times he was not a carpenter and there is no evidence that he was only that he was a skilled handyman and most likely that came from his fathers teachings. He was not sent here as a carpenter he was sent for a completely different purpose Jesus called himself the messiah the son of man we know that was his purpose for being sent here.

    Matthew 13:54-55 says, "And when He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 Is this not the carpenter's son?"


    Most people believe that Jesus was a carpenter before and even during His earthly ministry because it was Jewish custom to follow in the family business. But there is very little evidence to support that Jesus was a carpenter in the bible ... Especially since his sole purpose for being sent here was to teach the word of god and die for our sins so that those who believe shall not perish and have eternal life.

    According to Christian beliefs that was his purpose sure. It refers to him as a carpenter. Not much context to take it out of there. Whatever holy vessel you believe in Mohammad, Jesus, The Buddah, Mary, The Saints... They all got a "purpose". It's for an individual to decide on which establishment or "religion" to believe(have faith) in.

    Think about this? If God exists and he made us in his image and made animals and plants so we could benefit from them...why would he not make other worlds with other beings in his image? Believing all of this was made so selfishly just for us goes against that line of thinking but say it was made solely just for us... Aliens can't be made to benefit us to?

    Very interesting cuzzo, let me take it a step further. Could our Gods we all worship be just a Alien Entity?

    U mean...could the holy scriptures be a simple way of explaining our contacts with aliens? Lol u betcha. Now I wonder how many people's heads would explode if aliens came down and were like...oh ya Jesus was some dude we accidentally left behind. Our bad! Lol

    Beings descend from the sky far more advanced and intelligent than us. Teach us things, give us some scientific understanding. Leave it to humans to get it mixed up along the way.

    Yes, but if what you said is all true that means the Bible is TRUE too because back then the term for Alien is GOD.

    If God exists, he is by definition, extra-terrestrial. Thus, if He exists, and I'm quite certain he does, I suppose aliens do too. The real question is not "if" there is other intelligent life out there, but "what" are they? What is God? I believe the Bible version - insofar as it is translated correctly.
