"Rabbinic Reflections on Living Sacrifices at Romans 12:1"

By David Instone -Brewer (Jerusalem Perspective, 2008) (online)

Rabbinic traditions speak about Temple offerings which were kept alive and pastured till they were blemished. They could not be slaughtered for a variety of technical reasons, but while they lived, their profits (from wool or milk) went to the Temple, so long as they remained pure. This is the likely background to the 'Living Sacrifices' who are told to remain spotless.
