Finkelstein and Jesus
was wandering around Jerusalem
when He decided that He really needed a new robe.
After looking around for a while, He
saw a sign for Finkelstein, the Tailor. So, He went in and made the
necessary arrangements to have Finkelstein prepare a new robe for Him.
A few days later, when the robe was finished, Jesus
tried it on and it was a perfect fit!
He asked how much He owed.
Finkelstein brushed him off: "No, no,no, for the Son of God ? There's
no charge! However, may I ask for a small favor? Whenever you give a
sermon, perhaps you could just mention that your nice new robe was made
by Finkelstein, the Tailor ? "
readily agreed and as promised, and extolled t he virtues of his
Finkelstein robe whenever He spoke to the masses.
A few months later, while Jesus was
again walking through Jerusalem,
He happened to walk past Finkelstein's shop and noted a huge line of
people waiting for Finkelstein's robes.
He pushed his way through the
crowd to speak to him and as soon as
Finkelstein spotted him he said: "Jesus, Jesus, look
what you've done for my business ! Would you consider a
partnership ? "
"Certainly," replied Jesus.
"Jesus & Finkelstein it is."
"Oh, no, no," said
Finkelstein. "Finkelstein & Jesus. After all, I am the
craftsman." The two of them debated this for some time.
Their discussion was long and
spirited, but ultimately fruitful and they finally came up with a
mutually acceptable compromise.
A few days later, the new sign
went up over Finkelstein's shop.
Can you guess what it read ?
