    Clarke's Commentary on Mark 6:3

    Is not this the carpenter - Among the ancient Jews, every father was bound to do four things for his son.

    1. To circumcise him.

    2. To redeem him.

    3. To teach him the law.

    4. To teach him a trade.

    And this was founded on the following just maxim: "He who teaches not his son to do some work, is as if he taught him robbery!" It is therefore likely that Joseph brought up our Lord to his own trade.

    Joses - Several good MSS. read Ιωσητος, Joset, and one, with several versions, reads Joseph.

    Wesley's Notes on Mark 6:3
