I was reading today:
Matthew 8:20 KJV
And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
or NIV for those who prefer it:
Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place to lay his head.”
Also Jesus and his cousin John spent a lot of time in the wilderness. John lived of locusts and wild honey in the wilderness, and did not wear clothing bought from a store (Matthew 3:4). Jesus often spent long periods of time in the wilderness fasting and praying.
I was wondering if this meant that Jesus and John lived "off the grid"? Did John pay tax or use money, or even have a job?
