Saint Joseph Téktón in wood handcarved and handpainted in South Tyrol. Beautiful Saint Joseph Sculpture depicting him as Tèktón, greek ancient word always translated as Carpenter. More translations use the term Carpenter to describe Jesus' and Joseph's trade. The tradition often portrays Joseph and Jesus as Carpenters, working together, sharing the same tools. As a good Jewish, Joseph taught His Craft to his Son. In the Gospel, Matthew describes Jesus as Téktón's Son. This craft reminds us Joseph's Royal Origins, he was descendant of David from both genealogies. This is, maybe, the reason that Téktón can be translated with different meanings. Some scholars stated that this term is referred to a a Literate Man, a very learned Person.Some others translate Téktón as a Person involved in a physical work in which the worker can use not just wooden material but others like cements, stones, it could be seen as an Artisan, a Builder.
