Gospel of Thomas 13.1

Gospel of Thomas 13.1

“His father was a carpenter and made to that time ploughs and yokes. And he received an order from a rich man to make a bed for him. But when one beam was shorter than its corresponding one and they did not know what to do, the child Jesus said to his father Joseph: “Put down the two pieces of wood and make them even from the middle to one end”. And Joseph did as the child told him. And Jesus stood at the other end and took hold of the shorter piece of wood, and stretching it made it equal with the other.”
