Moses is one of the most complex characters of the Old Testament. Many scholars, like Sigmund Freud or Jan Assmann, engaged in his story, his origin or his motivations. Not only scholars, but several authors of children’s books dealed with Moses, and wrote tales about him. Among them, Eszter Szokács shows a really curious picture about Moses and the people who surrounded him. In her book Mózes, she creates characters which are easy to symphatize with – one of them is Caleb, whose faith is exemplary. In my paper, I search answers to the question: how could a modern paraphrase, which is a children’s story, shed new light on the nature of faith?
