    Jesus was a carpenter. I don't know if that was a hobby or not; it certainly was his earthly career.

    If a hobby is something one likes to do in spare time as a pasttime to break monotony, then I have three thoughts (none serious!)

    (1) Making His disciples squirm :eek:

    (2) Translating the still unwritten Greek into Jacobean English - oh wait, He did that as a hobby in heaven. [​IMG]

    (3) Food, Wine and Parties. ;) Jesus said that He "came . . . eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners."

    Serious answers are welcome . . .

    Perhaps bowling... He really bowled a lot of people over.

    Perhaps puzzles... He really solved many of the puzzles of prophecy.

    Perhaps hiking... He loved walking on a mountain with no one but His Father.

    Perhaps arboraculture... He planted and cultivated trees to produce good fruit.

    Perhaps baking... He is the bread of life.

    Perhaps writing... He is the author and finisher of our faith.

    Perhaps archaeology... He is the Rock of Ages.

    Perhaps hunting... He came to seek and to save that which was lost.

    Well, Dr. Bob asked for serious answers [​IMG] I'd have to wonder if Jesus had a hobby at all since he was so busy being about His Father's business and all! [​IMG]

    Once Jesus cast the money changers out of the Temple, He "cussed out" the Scribes and Pharisees and called them a bunch of vipers, hypocrites, white-washed sepulchures on their way to Hell, He created the universe, et. al., He made the sun stand still for Joshua, He parted the Red Sea for Moses, then drownded the Egyptian army with the same, He raised Lazarus from the dead, released Paul and Silas from jail, provided water from a Rock in the wilderness for about three million Jews, made the walls of Jericho fall outward... Who wants to take over from here?

    Whittleing?? Son, I've seen some fine wood carving stuff in my days done by folks who have "shops" back behind the house--garages, as you Yankees call them!! I've seen pieces carved with anything from pocketknives to chainsaws! I seriously doubt if Jesus had neither an Old Timer nor a Husquavarna, though!

    Your friend,
    Blackbird

    Oops, or should I say that He looked for and taught others to fish for men. And still does! [​IMG]

    Well, in all seriousness, he probably did what the other folks did. As a boy, heprobably sat around and played dreidl games. As an adult, I wouldn't be surprised if he used his capentry skills to create stone and wood artwork for his friends. I can see walking into the house of Peter and his wife, and say "this is a nice statue", and him saying "Thanks, my friend Jesus gave it to me as a birthday present".

    I would say his occupation was a Carpenter... His hobby was probably making sandals... He walked everywhere and burned up a lot of shoe leather... Brother Glen ;)
