I open the scriptures for you

So today in Elder's Quorum we discussed JST of Matthew 3:24.

24 And it came to pass that Jesus grew up with his brethren, and waxed strong, and waited upon the Lord for the time of his ministry to come.

My comment was people often overlooked an alternative, but just as valid interpretation of this scripture. That is we must remember Jesus grew up as a carpenter. So when it said he "waxed strong" that could very well be referencing his skills as a furniture refinisher.

And now you have seen the written word in a different way - your welcome.
