Sometimes I wonder if Jesus coming as the son of a carpenter has any symbolic meaning.
As a carpenter himself, he has been building His church,
“And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock, I will build my church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18)
The materials He uses, however, are not woods but us, the living stones,
“You are living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 1:25)
