What can impurity teach about the uncircumcised, who cannot eat from the Korban Pesach? Also, the Book of Yuchasin, lineage, spurs the question: Where are you from? Which grants a window into the travels of Chazal, from Lod to Nehardeah. And the put-downs of Chazal, too. On the one hand, Beruriah is held up as an example of her exceptional learning; on the other, the insult of being obviously upstaged by a woman may be worse than if she’d been male. Which takes the Gemara back to the intent question when it comes to the Korban Pesach, and its uniqueness.
