Pope In the Jewish Community

About a century or two ago, the Pope decided that all the Jews had to leave
Rome. Naturally there was a big uproar from the Jewish community. So the Pope
made a deal. He would have a religious debate with a member of the Jewish
community. If the Jew won, the Jews could stay. If the Pope won, the Jews would
leave.
The Jews realized that they had no choice. So they picked a middle aged man
named Moishe to represent them. Moishe asked for one addition to the debate. To
make it more interesting, neither side would be allowed to talk. The Pope
agreed.
The day of the great debate came. Moishe and the Pope sat opposite each other
for a full minute before the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers.
Moishe looked back at him and raised one finger. The Pope waved his fingers in a
circle around his head. Moishe pointed to the ground where he sat. The Pope
pulled out a wafer and a glass of wine. Moishe pulled out an apple. The Pope
stood up and said, give up. This man is too good. The Jews can stay.
An hour later, the cardinals were all around the Pope asking him what had
happened. The Pope said, First I held up three fingers to represent the
Trinity. He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still
one God common to both our religions. Then I waved my finger around me to show
him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground and
showing that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine and wafer to
show that God absolves us from our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of
original sin. He had an answer for everything. What could I do?
Meanwhile, the Jewish community had crowded around Moishe. 揥hat happened?
they asked. 揥ell, said Moishe, 揊irst he said to me that the Jews had three
days to get out of here. I told him that not one of us was leaving. Then he told
me that this whole city would be cleared of Jews. I let him know that we were
staying right here.
揧es, yes, and then??? asked the crowd.
don't know, said Moishe, He took out his lunch, and I took out mine.
