Student: Isn't there something in scripture about a Branch coming and judging with righteousness and stuff? That seems like cool stuff. Where can I find that?
Rabbi: As it is written "there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots: And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the..."
Student: Yeah, okay, that's the one. Cool. So, where can I find that?
Rabbi: It's there in scripture.
Student: Right, but where exactly?
Rabbi: You don't know? You should know that.
Student: Dude, I'm just learning. So, can you just tell me where to find it so I can study it?
Rabbi: It's in the book of Isaiah.
Student: Um...okay. That's kind of a long book, right? Can you be a little more specific?
Rabbi: I don't know how to be more specific except to say it's kind of toward the beginning.
Student: Like, in the first few paragraphs or something?
Rabbi: No, a little further than that.
Student: Alright, so how much further then?
Rabbi: Just read the book. You'll find it. I don't have time for this.
Student: Okay, thanks for nothing then. Yeesh.
I'm glad we don't have to have any conversations like that.
