Okay then. Maybe you can pretend your dead and have your student carry you out in a coffin.
Ummm. Okay. But why do you want to escape the city?
I'm here. What do you need.
because I want to save the oral torah and keep the jewish tradition alive.
I'm glad you came. I need a plan to escape the city.
Thats a really good idea.
Abba Sikra is the brother in law of RYBZ. Abba Sikra was asked to come and talk to RYBZ in secret.
RYBZ, we passed the guards. we are all set.
RYBZ did what Abba Sikra suggested and got out of the city.
Okay. Great. Keep walking until we get out of site.
Peace unto you, O king!
I know you are the king because the profits have mentioned that the temple will only fall into the hands of the king. And you ask why I come so late in the day? this is because the city would not let me out; so I had to fake my own death in order to get here.
you have almost faced the death penalty twice and then you call me the king?! what if I am? what if I am not? and even if I am, why do you come so late in the day? at least show some proper respect.
I am leaving to go back to Rome. However, I need someone to take my place here. RYBZ, will you make a request, which I will grant you?
Ok. here are my three requests: 1)the romans shall guarantee safety of the scholars of Sanhedrin (jewish Supreme Court) will be located. 2)the romans guarantee the survival of the family of Rabban Gamliel, a descendant of the house of David. 3) the romans allow their physicians to restore the health of Rabbi Tzaddok, who had fasted for forty years to pray for the safety of the city and the temple.
RYBZ ends up saving the oral torah. In later time, it becomes the Mishnah.
