Study Guide Sanhedrin 9-10

Eight different interpretations are brought to explain what is the case in the mishna where Rabbi Meir and the rabbis debate whether one who claims his wife was not a virgin when they got married (and that she had relations with someone after the engagement) is done in a court of 3 or 23, and what is the issue of their debate.  Can we have a case where false witnesses can incur the death penalty and also incur payment?  Can one testify about another while also incriminating himself?  What about one’s spouse?  What about one’s possessions?  What is the root of the debate about lashes whether they are dealt with in a court of 3 or 23?   When the mishna says “ibur hachodesh” what is meant by this?  Four different interpretations are brought.
