Schwartz & Jesus
Jesus was wandering around Jerusalem when He decided that He really needed a new robe.
After looking around for a while, he saw a sign for Schwartz, the Tailor. So, He went in and made the necessary arrangements to have Schwartz prepare a new robe for Him.
A few days later, when the robe was finished, Jesus tried it on and it was a perfect fit!
He asked how much He owed. Schwartz brushed him off: “No, no,no, for the Son of God ? There’s no charge! However, may I ask for a small favor? Whenever you give a sermon, perhaps you could just mention that your nice new robe was made by Schwartz, the Tailor ? ”
Jesus readily agreed and as promised, and extolled the virtues of his Schwartz robe whenever He spoke to the masses.
A few months later, while Jesus was again walking through Jerusalem , He happened to walk past Schwartz’s shop and noted a huge line of people waiting for Schwartz’s robes.
He pushed his way through the crowd to speak to him and as soon as Schwartz spotted him he said: Jesus, look what you’ve done for my business ! Would you consider a partnership ? ”
“Certainly,” replied Jesus.
“Jesus & Schwartz it is.”
“Oh, no, no,” said Schwartz.
“Schwartz & Jesus. After all, I am the craftsman.”
The two of them debated this for some time.
Their discussion was long and spirited, but ultimately fruitful and they finally came up with a mutually acceptable compromise.
A few days later, the new sign went up over Schwartz’s shop.
