I think the impression that Jesus was a carpenter before He started teaching is widespread, and it is worth considering the real causes of this, since the available evidence does not support it.

Three of the four Gospels -Matthew, John and Luke-, have not the slightest reference to the occupation of Jesus, directly or indirectly — not a single word. The Gospel of Matthew refers to Joseph as a carpenter, once and indirectly — nowhere and in no way to Jesus. Only in the Gospel of Mark Jesus is referred to as a carpenter, just once and not in the main narration about His life, but incidentally, when some Jews wonder how was it possible to be so wise, since He was only a carpenter.
