I'm trying to figure out what the text of Yoma 45b is teaching it's reader. There is this part (verse 6) about the 'perpetual fire' of the outer court of the mikdash as in Vayikra 6:6. And from this fire coals seem to be derived for lightning the candelabrum (Menorah).
But I got a little bit confused. Is it that the the Menorah had to be lit - on regular daily basis to give light from the eve untill the morning, and then again be lit at eve - by the fire, or coals produced by it, from the mizbeach of the outer court. And in such case, where these coals or this fire transported from the outside to the inner altar in order to light the Menorah there. Or was Menorah taken outside to be lit? The point is I don't quite understand the connection made between these two and in what way one has to do with the other.
Could someone please explain me this concept and maybe show from which verses or ideas Yoma 45b derives it's conclusions/interpretations.
