I heard (in a few dvar Torahs, though I can't find them now) that the Bais Yosef had recorded that his magid (the angel that taught him) had tricked him, and something like "from this we know that lying has a place in Torah too".

Please help me find the original of the Bais Yosef's recording of this story.

Please correct me if I got something wrong.

  • also says Gd tricked Avraham regarding why Sarah laughed – ray Dec 15 '15 at 6:42
  • @ray thank you, but I am looking for the Bais yosef source – hazoriz Dec 15 '15 at 11:34
  • @ray "tricked" might not be the appropriate term in that specific case, since Hashem was the one who informed Avraham of the laughter in the first place... – Isaac Kotlicky Dec 16 '15 at 3:15
