260. וְסוֹד נִסְתָּר הָיָה בְּתִינוֹק זֶה עַל מַה שֶּׁהִסְתַּלֵּק מֵהָעוֹלָם וְעַל שֶׁרָצוּ לָדוּן דִּינוֹ (בְּגָלוּי) וְנִצַּל מִמֶּנּוּ. זֶה הָיָה בְגִלּוּי, שֶׁהָיָה מְבַיֵּשׁ לְרַבּוֹ לִפְנֵי הַכֹּל בִּשְׁאֵלוֹת וְקֻשְׁיוֹת שֶׁלּוֹ, וְלֹא חָשַׁשׁ לָלֶכֶת לְאַחֵר לְהַתְקִין תַּלְמוּדוֹ, וְהֶחֱלִישׁ דַּעַת רַבּוֹ, וְלָכֵן רָצוּ לָדוּן אוֹתוֹ בְּדִין קָשֶׁה. וּמִשּׁוּם כָּךְ, אַף עַל גַּב שֶׁנִּצַּל מִבַּעֲלֵי הַדִּין, לֹא נִצַּל כָּאן. שִׁבְעָה יָמִים הָיוּ שֶׁלֹּא הִשְׁתַּלֵּם דְּיוֹקְנוֹ (דִּינוֹ). וּכְשֶׁהָיָה מִתְרַחֵץ, בִּכְאֵב יָתֵר לִפְנֵי הַכֹּל כָּל אוֹתָם שִׁבְעָה יָמִים עַד שֶׁהִשְׁתַּלֵּם דְּיוֹקְנוֹ. וְעַל שֶׁהִסְתַּלֵּק מֵהָעוֹלָם לֹא תִרְצֶה לָדַעַת. אִי רַבִּי, אִי רַבִּי, אַשְׁרֵי חֶלְקְךָ!


Zohar Shelach Lecha
There was a hidden secret about the boy and why he left the world. He was saved from harsh judgment. He would openly embarrass his rabbi in front of everyone with his challenging questions, to which he could not respond with explanations. He was not afraid to go to another rabbi to share his studies, so he weakened his rabbi’s position. For that reason, they want to judge him harshly. Even though he was saved from the angels that wanted to execute judgment on him, he was not saved entirely and had to go through seven days of painful cleansing until he restored his unblemished image. And about why he left the world, better not to know., blessed is your lot.

The child left the world for a reason that the head of the Yeshiva was not ready to reveal. He said that the child did not respect his rabbi, so he gathered judgments that after death, he needed to get ‘punished’ to cleanse his soul. He was partially saved because of his Torah knowledge.
When a student has a question his teacher cannot answer, he should not belittle him. The Talmud is full of discussions where one rabbi brings different opinions to the same issue. They always do it respectfully and accept the idea of the majority or the one with greater knowledge and experience. Embarrassing a teacher for not answering a specific question disrespects the body of knowledge that that teacher already has, which means disrespecting the Light of the Torah. Sometimes a student is a channel of Light to the teacher to guide him into expanding knowledge in a specific direction. If we have a good question for which the teacher doesn’t have an answer, then we should thank Hashem for the vessel we created for the Light of the answer. We become part of the teacher’s vessel, and when he finds the answer, the Light comes to the student and the teacher.
