I know it’s after Pesach, but as we are still learning the kodshim perakim of Pesachim in the Kollel Gavoah, sources on korban Pesach are still fair game. On that note, I found a comment by a Rishon I never heard of before, ר ‘ יעקב דילישקייאש מוינאin Sefer אמרי נועם(apparently a late Medieval collection of French and German commentaries on Chumash), in the new volume of תורת ראשנים by Mossad HaRav Kook (Pesachim Volume 4) that I don’t understand. Any help would be appreciated.
There is a prohibition of breaking the bones of the korban Pesach. The exact parameters are a matter of dispute in the seventh perek of Pesachim. Many reasons have been given for the prohibition. For example (just taking the examples from the Torat Rishonim pages 686-7): 1) Breaking bones is not a thing that well to do free people would do, so we should not do it (Chinuch 16). 2) One does not break bones to suck out marrow when he is eating in a rush, so to commemorate the Jews rushing out of Egypt, we can’t break the bones (Haggadah of Rabbi Dovid HaNaggid, Bechor Shor to Shemot 12:46). 3) The Egyptians had to be able to recognize that the Jews were eating their gods, so the bones has to remain intact so the animals would remain recognizable (Ibn Ezra, cited approvingly in Orchot Chaim Hilchot Seder Leil HaPesach 28). 4) The Korban was supposed to be eaten when full, so sucking at the bones makes it look like one was hungry and did not eat the korban the way it was supposed to (Tosafot HaShalem to Shemot 12:46).
All of these reasons I understand. However, in the Sefer אמרי נועםof this Rabbi Yaakov to Shemot 12:46 he writes as follows:
ועצם לא תשברו בו- פירוש כשם שאני לא שברתי עצם, דכתיב בעצם היום הזה וגו’, גם אתם לא תשברו עצם.
Any help understanding what this means would be much appreciated.
