Chapter 1, Mishna 1
Why does Temple always win? Why does paying with money for restitution take precedence over paying with real property? Why would rich man ever be entitled to poor man’s tithe? Does restitution always have to be from best quality? How is “superior quality land” determined? Can creditor take new owner’s land if there’s a lien on it? How did sages’ ordinance protect buyers and creditors? Do liens travel with superior land or original part of land creditors were entitled to?
