Storyboard Text

  • Which of the three laws-Jewish, Saracen, or Christian, is true?
  • My Lord, let me tell you a story...
  • My sons. As I lay here, dying, I make one final statement. I will bequeath this ring to one of my sons, and whoever has it in his possession will be my heir and head of the family.
  • There was a man named Saladin, who was in debt. He remembered that there was a Jew named Melchisedech, who had a money-lending business, but wouldn't lend him the money if he simply asked, so Saladin decided to use force disguised as reason
  • As my father left me the ring, I leave this ring to you to choose my heir.
  • Melchisedech knew that Saladin was trying to pick a quarrel, so he began to tell a story instead. "There was once a great and wealthy man, who wanted to leave a precious ring to one of his sons..."
  • I know I am going to die soon. But who will be my heir? I love all my sons equally....
  • After the father dies, he passes the ring to one of his sons, who then inherits everything, and becomes the head of the family.
  • I know!
  • As years pass, the son dies and hands the ring over to one of his sons, and thus the ring was passed down through many succeeding generations, until...
  • The ring arrived in the hands of a man who had three handsome, virtuous, obedient sons, all of whom he loved equally.
  • The worthy man couldn't decide which one to bequeath the ring to, so he decided to attempt to satisfy all three.
