One year, during Sukkot, the Rabbi went up to the Temple and began teaching.  Many were amazed and said, "How has he become such a scholar without having gone to yeshiva and studied?"

So he answered them and said, "My teaching is not mine, but His who sent me. "If anyone is willing to do His will, they will know of the teaching, whether it is from G-d or whether I speak from myself.  The person who speaks for himself seeks his own glory; but he who is seeking the glory of the One who sent him, he is true and trustworthy, and there is no unrighteousness in him."

"Did not Moshe give you the Torah and yet none of you carries out the Torah? Why do you seek to kill Me?"

The crowd answered, "You have a demon! Who seeks to kill You?"

The Rabbi answered them, "I did one deed and you are all amazed by it. For this reason Moshe has given you circumcision (not because it is from Moshe, but from the fathers), and on Shabbat you circumcise a man. If a man receives circumcision on the Shabbat so that the Torah of Moshe will not be broken, why do you get angry at me [and speaking lashon hara] for healing the entire man on Shabbat? Do not judge by the appearance of the eye, but judge with correct judgment."


This is the life of the Rabbi.
