Apocryphal birth of Jesus Christ, in an obscure village, child of a peasant woman. Worked in a carpenter shop until 30. Then for three years an unemployed itinerant preacher. Never wrote a book, never held office, had a family or owned a house. Didn't go to college, had no credentials. Never visited a big city nor traveled more than 200 miles from his birthplace. Did none of the things one usually associates with greatness.

He was 33 when the tide of public opinion turned against him & his pals ditched him. Turned over to his enemies, went through the mockery of a trial. He was nailed to a cross between two thieves. While dying, his executioners gambled for his clothing, his only property. Buried in a borrowed grave through the pity of a friend.

Fully fits the description of a bum, a vagrant, a ne'er do well.
