Class 11 – Murder at a Purim Feast
Class 11: Murder at a Purim Feast As Purim approaches, we encounter a Talmudic conundrum:
Rabbah and Rav Zeira celebrated the Purim feast together. They became intoxicated. Rabbah arose and slaughtered Rav Zeira. The next day, Rabbah prayed for mercy on Rav Zeira’s behalf and revived him. The following year, Rabbah said, “Let master come, and we will celebrate the Purim feast together.” Rav Zeira answered, “Not every time does a miracle occur.” -Megillah 7b, B. Talmud
What is going on here? A holy Sage gets so drunk that he slaughters a colleague, and yet he merits to have his resurrection prayer answered by God?
