Jesus went to Torah school and then was an apprentice who matured into a successful “general contractor” from age 12 to 30. So for about 18 years…He ran a very profitable business without sin!
Jesus used all 613 Commandments and His Father’s will to guide His business. His 35+ parables—about 70% discuss handling various marketplace issues—reveal His 18 years of experience and maturity. We always talk about His three year ministry, but little about His 18 years in His marketplace ministry.
Let’s break this cycle of church ignorance and poverty.This Biblical overview content examines God’s prosperity building sequence of wisdom, work, and wealth with a marketplace perspective—because God does not bless what His Word forbids.
From Biblical roots, we share the successive steps of shoots to fruits to pursue our individual callings within His team and to prosper our home, church, and our “Jerusalem” communities for His kingdom.
