Nadab and Abihu were the oldest sons of Aaron. They were appointed by God as priests alongside Aaron and were eventually to replace him as the lead priest. So they were leaders and were supposed to live exemplary lives. God takes leadership very seriously and there’s an unfortunate event that befalls Nadab & Abihu-they both die because they offer unauthorized fire to the Lord. The event is recorded for us in Leviticus 10: v1-v3. We are going to be diving into the story, make some observations and draw the implications for us today. I’ll invite you to watch the video below in its entirety.
