Jesus and the Tailor George Jaenicke grjaenicke grjaenicke@mindspring.com Jesus And The Tailor

Jesus is wandering around Jerusalem when He decides He really needs a new robe. After looking around, He sees a sign for FINKLESTEIN THE TAILOR. He goes in and Finklestein prepares a new robe for Him, which is a perfect fit. When He asks how much He owes, Finklestein brushes him off. "No, no, no, for the Son of God? There's no charge! However, may I ask a small favor? Maybe whenever you give a sermon you could just mention a little something about how your nice new robe was made by Finklestein the Tailor." Jesus readily agrees and, as promised, plugs Finklestein's robes every time He preaches.
Some months later, He is walking through Jerusalem and happens by Finklestein's shop. There is a huge line of people waiting for Finklestein's robes. He pushes His way through the crowd to speak to Finkelstein. "Jesus, Jesus. Look what a marvel you've been for business," gushed Finklestein.
"Would you consider a partnership?"
"Sure, sure," replies Jesus. "Jesus & Finklestein it is."
"Uh no, no," says Finklestein. "Finklestein & Jesus. After all, I am the craftsman."

The two of them debated this for some time. Their discussion was long, spirited, but ultimately fruitful. Finally, they come up with a mutually acceptable compromise. A few days later, the new sign went up over Finklestein's shop......
