the Sages who argue on Rabbi Elazar
There is an argument over what is to be done with a Kohen's
"Sinner - Mincha"
(if he had to bring a For example, one who takes a false oath or makes the Beis Hamikdash
impure must bring a Chatas.
In contrast to the regular Chatas
(which is an animal), the type of Chatas
one brings for these sins depends on the sinners financial state. If he was poor, he may bring a bird, and if he was very poor, he may bring a Mincha. Variable-Cost offering
and was very poor and could only afford a Mincha).
The verse says "Every Mincha
of a Kohen
shall be a offered whole: it shall not be eaten". The Gemara
says that perhaps only the voluntary Mincha
is to be fully burned, but a Kohen's
sinner - Mincha
may be eaten, the verse says (about a sinner - Mincha)
" It shall belong to the Kohen,
like the Mincha".
So there are two opinions how to interpret this verse:
1. The Sages say that just as the Kohen's
may not be eaten, so too his mandatory Mincha
may not be eaten.
2. Rabbi Shimon said that the Hekesh
is not comparing a Kohen's
but a regular person's Mincha
(which is eaten), so just as one takes a Kometz
from a regular Mincha,
must take a Kometz
from his own Mincha.
But since the verse says "to the Kohen,
like the Mincha"
(which implies that it's like a regular Mincha
for the Kohen,
but not for the Mizbeach
as ...), he may not eat from the rest of the Mincha,
and must burn it too.
אבל בהא אפי' רבנן
, even the Sages would agree
The Sages argue over the law of a regular Sinner - Mincha.
Since they hold that since there is no doubt over what must be done to a Sinner - Mincha,
they rule that it must be burned in one shot. But it's unclear what should be done to a Kohen's
wife's Sotah's Mincha?
If it's considered her offering, then it should be eaten. If it's his offering, it should be burned. So they agree that there is no choice but to take the Kemitza, burn it, and the rest must be burned too.
