En Jacob, Vol. 5 : Agada of the Babylonian Talmud (Classic Reprint)


Excerpt from En Jacob, Vol. 5: Agada of the Babylonian Talmud R. Jochanan said: Where is the resur rection of the dead intimated in the Torah? It is said (num. 18, 28) And ye shall give thereof the heave-offering (t'rumah) of the Lord to Aaron the priest. Would then Aaron remain alive forever that Israel should give him heave-offerings? Infer from this that he will come to life again and Israel will give him heave - offerings. Hence here is an intimation in the Torah of the resur rection. The school of R. Ismael, however, explained the above passage in this man ner: 'to Aaron, ' means priests who are sim ilar to him - viz., scholars as he was. And from this it is inferred that no T'rumah should be given to an ignorant priest. R. Samuel b. Nachmeni said: Whence do we know that one must not give the heave offering to a priest who is an ignoramus? It is said (i Chron. 31, 4) To give the por tion of the priests, and the Levites, in order that they might hold firmly to the law of the Lord. Hence the priest who knows how to hold firmly to the law has a portion, but not he who is ignorant of the law. R. Acha b. Ada said in the name of R. Juda: Whoever gives T'rumah to an ignorant priest acts as if he threw it before a lion; just as in throw ing it before a lion there is a doubt whether it shall be trodden upon and eaten or not, so is it doubtful whether the priest will eat it in Levitical cleanliness or uncleanliness R. Jochanan said: He mav even cause death to the ignorant priest [by doing so] as itis said (lev. 22, 9) That they may not bear sin through it, and die therefor, if they profane it. At the college of R.
