Finkelstein and Jesus

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 ? "

           Jesus 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 ?
