Why are some Korbanos called 'Chatas' and some 'Asham'?
Why are six Korbanos called Ashamos, insinuating that they atone for bigger sins than those for which a Chatas atones?
Ramban: Because the Asham Gezeilos, 1 Asham Shifchah Charufah 2 and Asham Nazir 3 are even Chayav be'Meizid; the Asham Me'ilos, because it involves Kodshei Hashem and the Asham Metzora, 4 because a Metzora is considered dead, and whose status is therefore one of desolation. 5 Whereas as far as the Asham Taluy 6 is concerned, since it comes on a Safek and the sinner does not take it seriously, the Torah is strict with him, to the point that the minimum cost of an Asham Taluy is far more than that of a Chatas Vadai. 7
