" The kohanim lit the menorah in the Sanctuary every evening and cleaned it out every morning, replacing the wicks and putting fresh olive oil into the cups. The illustration feautred on this page is based on instructions for construction of the menorah found in Exodus 25:31-40. "... The only answer i have recieved (from Jewish friends in Judaism) is that they quote "oral Torah" and say it is lit on shabbat and that i shouldnt ask why cause sacrifices were made on shabbat too.... So I take it that the Kohanim had this authority to serve the temple aside from the command unto the nation of Israel not to lite a fire
The Tanakh reads Chapter 35/ And you shall command the children of Israel, and they shall take to you pure olive oil, crushed for lighting, to kindle the lamps continually.
Chapter 27 "You shall not kindle fire in any of your dwelling places on the Sabbath day."
(A difference is ba'ar 35:3 and alah 27:21 when using a Strongs to relate to the Hebrew) However 27:21 does mention a Burning "Always" (tâmı̂yd) thus NOT Lit everyday. Jews I discussed this with said the temple menorah was lit everyday (so i was getting conflicting answers) But now I see it resolved!
So now I think the point is in bold above! Praise Yah He always gives understanding when we seek HIM!
