CAPERNAUM, AD 22
"The design and performance of my boat built by Jesus ben Joseph and John Zebedee is outstanding," said a fisherman who uses one of the new crafts created by the Zebedee boat shop. It is reported that the new design is safer and faster than any previous craft. Improved construction methods include a special technique of steaming the boards.
John Zebedee gives most of the credit to his skilled craftsman, Jesus, who arrived from Nazareth a year ago. Zebedee said that Jesus is also a remarkable philosopher and teacher. Two of Zebedee’s sons, James and John the younger, agree with their father about Jesus as a teacher. David Zebedee, the other son, is less enthusiastic. He stated: "Jesus is a great designer and craftsman, but his ideas on religion and philosophy are rather peculiar to me."
The Zebedee boats are known for their speed and stability
