Expert Answers

Daniel finally makes the break from Rosh when Joel is captured while doing what Rosh has ordered and Rosh refuses to do anything to try to rescue Joel.  In fact Rosh shows absolutely no concern for Joel at all.  Daniel becomes very angry and Rosh, in turn attacks Daniel for having a "soft streak."  This is it for Daniel.  He has finally seen that Rosh is just a selfish man who really attacks the Romans for his own glory not to save Israel.  Daniel leaves and organizes an a rescue party for Joel. The attemp rescues Joel but several others are killed by the Romans.
