Written by EJ Cohen

On the eighth day of the consecration of Aaron as the High Priest, the people were told to bring their sacrifices to the altar. Aaron's two eldest sons, Nadav and Abihu, offered a sacrifice that was above and beyond what was commanded. They added a 'strange fire' to their pan, and as a result of their disobeying, the fire consumed them, killing them.
