What was Pinchas's inner spiritual journey and calculation in taking out Zimri? The Rebbe explains using insights from the Zohar (3:246-247) linking Pinchas's story to Yitzchak Avinu, the narrative of the Tree of Knowledge, Adam and Chava. After this fascinating Kabbalistic journey of association, the Rebbe applies this Zoharic teaching to provide practical guidance on how one can guard themselves against engaging in (self) destructive behavior, and further explains why, ironically, Torah scholars must be particularly vigilant in avoiding temptation.
