Our Sages, of Blessed Memory
It seems that the words of Chazal have absolute authority in Judaism. ‘Chazal says’ means ‘end of discussion’. I also agree that all Chazal are outstanding tzaddikim, but a tzaddik can also makes a mistake. Chazal are also imperfect individuals like us who do human errors. Then, why does the word of Chazal have so great an authority? Isn’t it a bit “dangerous”?
