First Century Business

To: Jesus, Son of Joseph
From: Jordan Management Consultants

Thank you for submitting the resumes of the 12 men you have picked for management positions in your new organization. All of them have now taken our battery of tests, an we have not only run the results through our computer, but also have arranged personal interviews for each of them with our psychologist and vocational aptitude consultant.

The profiles of all tests are included, and you will want to study them carefully. As part of our service we will make some general comments. These are given as a result of staff consultations and come without any additional fee.

It is the staff opinion that most of the nominees are lacking in background, education and vocational aptitude for this kind of enterprise you are undertaking. They do not have the team concept. We recommend you continue your search.

Simon Peter is emotionally unstable and given to fits of temper. Andrew has absolutely no qualities of leadership. The brothers, James and John, place personal interest above company loyalty. Thomas has a skeptical attitude which would tend to undermine morale. It is our duty to inform you that Matthew has been black-listed by the Greater Jerusalem Business Bureau. James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddeus have radical learnings and show a high score on the manic-depressive scale.

Only one shows great potential - ability, resourcefulness, a business mind, meets people well, ambitious, highly motivated. We recommend Judas Iscariot as your controller and right hand man.
