87. THE 7 BOOKS OF MOSES
 Hereupon the previously speaking Pharisee asked the Roman if only he or if also somebody else could ask him a question.
 The Roman said: “This is one and the same to me! Anyone of you who knows to ask, can ask me!”
 With this ruling they were content and another came forward, a scribe of the first rank, opened his mouth and said: “Listen! Only one question which you cannot answer to a general contentment, you will, according to your own ruling, loose a thousand pounds of gold!”
 The Roman said: “This we know already! You should not think of the gold anymore but about a wise question! Since the question will make you more sweat than the negotiated gold,
which you not yet have won by a far cry. Just give me the first question, so that I can learn its spirit!”
 Here the Pharisee thought for a while, which question he should ask him first and which the Roman will not be able to answer that easily. Then it occurred to him that the Roman could not know how many books were written by Moses, since in general among the people it was known that Moses had not written more than five books. However, that Moses had actually written seven books and a purely prophetic appendix, which the Pharisee knew quite well, and at the same time assumed with great certainty that no one could know this except for the deepest adepts of the temple, which is why he ask the Roman whether he would know how many books were written by Moses.
