Daf Yomi About Oto Ish's Death Falls on Shabbat HaGadol

The Gilui Milta B'alma blog points out that the censored part of Sanhedrin 43 (compare the censored version with the uncensored version) that talks about Oto Ish's execution which was on Erev Pesah will be learned by Daf Yomi learners on Shabbat Hagadol, a mere 2 days before Erev Pesah.

Funny how these things turn out.

I have absolutely no idea what you are writing about, but it sounds very exciting anyway.
Have a great Pesach!

Could you translate what exactly is written about Oto Ish.. I tried to read it from the Cambridge text in Hebrew but could not understand totally... Thanks, Isaac

Not only that, Yaak. But the xians say he is their "Passover Lamb" and one reason for calling this Shabbat Hagadol is because we slaughtered the lamb that the Egyptians worshipped on this day. Kind of the same thing, huh?

Anonymous, see this Wikipedia article

Devash, I never heard the first part of what you said before. Interesting.
