Working in a for-profit business

What does the New Testament say? Jesus spent 85 percent of his working life as a carpenter. The root word for carpenter is tekton, which has similar roots to “technology.” Since there was little wood in the area, Jesus was probably not a builder of cabinets or other wood products. Research has found the city of Sepphoris was being built around that time, and that Jesus and Joseph likely had jobs as stone masons, building homes and other structures for Greeks and Romans, not necessarily Jewish folks. The Son of God likely spent most of his earthly life as a builder in a for-profit business.
