A wealthy man was once having a HUGE party. He sent a messenger to give an invite to his Best Friend Kamtza. I’m on my way!!
BUT… By mistake, the messenger gives the invitation to Bar Kamtza, the wealthy man’s WORST ENEMY!! Hi! My name is Bar Kamtza!
Everybody was having a great time at the party. The wealthy man was having the time of his life. BUT THEN… BAR KAMTZA ARRIVED. Hi everybody!!
“Caesar, the Jewish people are rebelling against you. Be prepared for battle. They are staging an attack. Do this before it’s too late!” Bar Kamtza lies. “And how do we know this is true?” asks Caesar. “I’ll tell you what. Why don’t you give a cow to the Temple as a sacrifice. If they reject it, you know they are rebelling against you, and if they don’t we know it’s just a rumour,” says Bar Kamtza. And it was so. The Romans gave Bar Kamtza their best cow to give to the temple as a sacrifice.
As Bar Kamtza and the cow walk closer and closer to the Beit Hamikdash, Bar Kamtza sneakily pulls out his pocket knife and slits the cow’s nose. Now it was impossible for the Temple to sacrifice the cow!
Never, ever hate someone Never lie Always make sure you have a good messenger Love your neighbour Treat people how you would like to be treated
