The "Carpenter" of Mark 6:3

Date: Sun Feb 09 1997 - 04:51:24 EST

Any insight on whether the Greek word translated "carpenter" in Mark 6:3
really refers to a woodworker? Someone told me awhile back that the literal
translation was "stone worker", and I'd like to know if there's any
linguistic backing to that claim. (I've never studied Greek.)

Thanks much,
