The Sefer Avodas Hamelech suggests that there are two types of nevuos. One type is when Hashem tells a navi a commandment and to relate it to klal Yisrael. Another type of nevuah is a gilui (revelation) regarding something. When the Rambam said that a navi cannot claim that Hashem told him that the halacha follows a certain opinion, he was referring to the first type of nevuah, e.g. that the navi would command us to follow that opinion. However, in the case of the bas kol the nevuah was simply revealing who Hashem decided the halacha should follow. It did not command us to follow that opinion. Therefore, we can follow the bas kol that said that the halacha is in accordance with Beis Hillel.

The tendency to rely on human beings rather than G-d has been our curse throughout the centuries.

“Who is wise? One who learns from each person” (Pirkei Avot 4:1)

In Judaism, to be without questions is a sign not of faith, but of lack of depth.

One difference between Bnei Yisrael and Bnei Noach is that shiurim only apply to Bnei Yisrael.

The Gemara, in Kiddushin 57b, searches for a source to confirm that the bird that is to be set free is permitted to be eaten after the process is concluded.

The Gemara (Niddah 31b) states that Rabbi Shimon bar Yochai was asked why a woman who gives birth must bring a korban.

The Ritvah understands that the kosher signs are not just “signs” indicating that a fish is kosher; rather, they are what actually render the fish kosher. This may also be applied to the kosher signs of an animal, but the Ritvah does not indicate this.
