Text and Context Session 2: Jesus the Workman - Sample Clip


Desi takes us further on our journey back into the agrarian society where Jesus grew up, and we begin to understand the full extent of the "Tekton's" - the village artisan's - skills that He learned from His earthly father Joseph, and the wider environment in which those skills were used. We look at the possibility that Jesus was acquainted with the world of the theatre in His day. The contrasts between the Hebraic and Hellenistic views of work are explored, and the Session concludes with Jesus' invitation to study with Him: "Take my yoke...learn from me."
