The Temple Institute: A Day in the Life of the Holy Temple: The Lamb is Led to Slaughter

The Lamb is Led to Slaughter

Now, the priest who received first place in the lottery and thus, the right to slaughter the tamid, leads the lamb to the area of the court north of the altar. He is followed by the 6 priests who will actually bring the parts of the sacrifice up to the altar's ramp.

This slaughtering area was especially equipped: it featured metal rings in the floor the court for holding the animals; 8 small stone columns, topped with wooden blocks and fitted with metal rings, for removing the skin, and marble tables for preparing the sacrifices to be brought to the altar.
