Now You Know The Rest Of The Story..........
The Torah Matzav
ר' כהנא said, “ When I was eighteen years
the whole Shas and I didn’t know that the פסוק doesn’t
leave the Pshat (אין המקרא יוצא מידי פשוטו)
It. is very difficult to understand how an eighteen year
Yeshiva Bachur who completed all of Shas isn’t aware
that the פסוקים are meant to
be understood as פשוט פשט.
The Chasam Sofer
(תורת משה פ' בשלח ד"ה קצת
מדרוש) writes that the
original מסורה was
to teach first the children only
Even though this system doesn’t seem right, this was the מסורה
of previous generations. ( The Ch.S. has a lengthy explanation
of why it was done so)
It would seem that the opponents of the ספר פשוטו
would like to reintroduce the long since forgotten מסורה and
even take it further by holding back even adults
from פשוטו של מקרא
