Who was the greatest person joke

When Abraham Liebowitz got to school, he discovered that he was the only Jewish kid in the class. His teacher asked, “Who was the greatest person who ever lived and why?” And just to make it interesting, she held up a bill and said, “Whoever gives the best answer will win this twenty dollar bill.” Every kid called out their guesses. One said, “George Washington, because he was the father of our country.” Another said, “Abraham Lincoln, because he freed the slaves.” One little girl said, “Joan of Arc, because she saved France .” Then Abraham Liebowitz quietly raised his hand. The teacher said, “Abraham, who do you think was the greatest person who ever lived and why?” Abraham said, “Jesus Christ.” His teacher was shocked. “Abraham, while I am surprised, you win the twenty!” and handed it to him. Later, she asked him why he answered as he did. Abraham said, “Personally, I think it was Moses, but business is business!”
