Imagine this; you’re on your way to Jerusalem to offer a Passover sacrifice. As you are walking down the road, an area peddler calls to get your attention. He has in his possession a lamb that is being made available to you for this one time low price. As you look over this possible purchase opportunity, you notice one eye is swollen & encrusted shut. As you examine its front legs, you fine her knees face opposite directions. Flies congregate around her mucus oozing nose, as she drools down her neck.

So do you give him your five magic beans for this fine piece of livestock, thinking this is a worthy sacrifice?
