Did You Know?
The Jewish Sabbath does not necessarily end when the sun goes down, but when it gets dark which could be up to an hour later. Also, an observant Jew would not be able to travel outside a city on Sabbath, even on foot, for more than 2,000 biblical "cubits" (~1,000 yards) from the place he was in when Sabbath began. Therefore, Avram would not have been willing to travel, leading his horse, on Sabbath. It is also forbidden to carry on the Sabbath in a public domain (such as a road), or to make one's animal carry. This is another reason why Avram would refuse to travel. See more
But you're a good man!
I am a good man. I am. But I'm not a Rabbi.
Don't say that!
Tommy, I'm not a Rabbi.
Don't SAY that!
[Throws food at Avram in anger
You are a Rabbi. I'm a bank robber. I'm a card player and a whoremonger. That's what I am. YOU are a Rabbi. You can fall in the mud, you can slip on your ass, you can travel in the wrong direction. But even on your ass, even in the mud, even if you go in the wrong direction for a little while, you're STILL a Rabbi! THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE!
