Corban

Additional Links

In Jewish antiquity, were those offerings which had life; in opposition to the minchab, or those which had not. It is derived from the word karab, which signifies, "to approach;" because the victims were brought to the door of the tabernacle. The corban were always looked upon as the most sacred offerings. The Jews are reproached with defeating, by means of the corban, the precept of the fifth commandment, which enjoins the respect due to parents; for when a child had no mind to relieve the wants of his father or mother, he would say to them

"It is a gift (corban) by whatsoever thou mightest be profited by me;" 1: e. "I have devoted that to God which you ask of me, and it is no longer mine to give." Mark 7:11 .
