Jewish History: Biblical History: The Killing in the Temple:
Who was the person who was killed in the Temple?
He was a priest and prophet named Zechariah ben Yehoyada. He was
stoned by the people, with the encouragement of the king, because
of his unpopular prophecy. In 2 Chron.24:20-22 it says that he was
stoned in the Temple courtyard. In the Palestinian Talmud (Taanis
4:8) one of the Rabbis asks whether he was killed in the Women's
Court or the Men's Court, and was told that it was in the Priests'
Court, which is a zone on the side of the altar away from the Temple.
(Incidentally, in Luke 11:51 it says that he was killed between the
altar and the Temple.)
