Text – Leviticus 10:1-7

The Sin of Nadab and Abihu

10 Now Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aaron, took their respective firepans, and after putting fire in them, placed incense on it and offered strange fire before the Lord, which He had not commanded them.  And fire came out from the presence of the Lord and consumed them, and they died before the Lord. Then Moses said to Aaron, “It is what the Lord spoke, saying,

‘By those who come near Me I will be treated as holy,
And before all the people I will be honored.’”

So Aaron, therefore, kept silent.

Moses called also to Mishael and Elzaphan, the sons of Aaron’s uncle Uzziel, and said to them, “Come forward, carry your relatives away from the front of the sanctuary to the outside of the camp.” So they came forward and carried them still in their tunics to the outside of the camp, as Moses had said. Then Moses said to Aaron and to his sons Eleazar and Ithamar, “ Do not uncover your heads nor tear your clothes, so that you will not die and that He will not become wrathful against all the congregation. But your kinsmen, the whole house of Israel, shall bewail the burning which the Lord has brought about. You shall not even go out from the doorway of the tent of meeting, or you will die; for the Lord’s anointing oil is upon you.” So they did according to the word of Moses.

My notes from the introduction:

  • Charles Allen once remarked: God had only one Son and He made Him a preacher. After I had taught seminary for a while, I spent 2 years on the staff of a church and went back into education, the Ligonier Study Center and back to the seminary classroom and one night a student came to me with stars in his eyes and he said, „What was it like for you when you were just a preacher?  And I was apoplectic. I said, „What do you mean just a preacher? I said, „Don’t you understand that there is no higher calling on this planet than the pulpit ministry? And I said, „I’m not a preacher because I don’t think I have what it takes to be the shepherd of a flock. The demands are excruciating, the appreciation minimal and there’s nothing that I desire more in the latter years of my life than to try and be an encouragement to pastors, to ministers. Ten years ago, I answered the call to become the minister of preaching and teaching at St. Andrews Chapel in Florida. And I have to tell you, in all the different things that I’ve been involved in my lifetime, this has been the most fun and the greatest joy and delight. There is nothing like the opportunity of having to speak to the same people week in and week out, to preach through whole books of the Bible and to not worry about trying to impress anybody when we’re meeting again on the Lord’s day and we’re coming to the Book, to hear, not my opinions, not my agenda, not the latest pop psychology or current events, BUT TO HEAR A WORD FROM GOD.
  • Before the apostle Paul died and he wrote his final letter to his number 1 student and protege, Timothy; when he got to the end of that letter, explained to Timothy that he was about to be poured out  and he gave his last instructions- he didn’t write to Timothy: Hey Timothy, preach! He said, „TIMOTHY, PREACH THE WORD.” „Preach the Word in season and out of season. That’s what our vocation is. And, we are only as faithful as we are to that task.  (min 4:21)

Notes from

There are a series of passages categorized as „The Hard Sayings”–those sayings that make us say, „How can God do something like this?”

In this passage, sons of Aaron indulged in a little experimentation. They came to the altar and offered unauthorized fire. God’s response was immediate, dramatic, and severe. He executed them on the spot. How do we respond to a story like this?

In the denomination I was ordained in, the P.C.U.S.S.R…er…I mean the P.C.U.S.A., they used curriculum that warned high schoolers not to take the OT literally. They used this text to show that if the stories were literal, then God must have a dark and evil side. It taught that, since we know this is not how God is, these stories must be explicable by natural events, and God didn’t do it.

It is shocking how understated the Bible is sometimes. Two of Aaron’s fall dead and no emotional reaction is recorded. You can imagine Aaron’s response–„I’ve been faithful and is this the thanks I get?” But what is significant is Moses’s reply–„Don’t you remember the commandment: „By all who come near me I will be regarded as holy. I will tolerate nothing less.”

Lots has changed since Moses and Aaron’s conversation, but not the character of God. He has never, and will never, negotiate his holiness.

Another understatement: „And Aaron held his peace.” You better believe it. What else could he do? Was he going to fight with God? Tell him he was overreacting? Ask for some latitude? Is he going to call god silly or inane? Can’t we just play a little? No–Aaron shut his mouth.

Moses has the corpses of Nadab and Abihu carried out of the camp from the tabernacle in the center of the camp. God did not just want these guys killed; he wanted them all the way away, outside the borders, in outer darkness. For heaven’s sake don’t let them lie there in the sanctuary!

Moses told Aaron to not mourn for these men. They are not worthy of being mourned.

It was the Lord who killed Nadab and Abihu. He brought down the fire. It was not a terrestrial accident but the judgment of a holy God.

Consider now the story of Uzzah. The ark of the covenant was being carried in a cart. This was not the way it was designed to be carried. It should have been on the shoulders of priests. When one of the oxen stumbled the ark looked like it was going to fall. Uzzah keeps it from tipping in the mud. God’s reaction was not, „Thank you, Uzzah!” No, God killed Uzzah instantly. Uzzah believed that mud would desecrate the ark, but mud is just dirt and water obeying God. Mud is not evil. God’s law was not meant to keep the ark pure from the earth, but from the dirty touch of a human hand. Uzzah presumed his hands were cleaner than the dirt. God said no.

Now in the New Testament. Ananias and Sapphira lie to the Holy Spirit and die without a second chance.

Sometimes it seems like God boils over in temper tantrums that are inexcusable. From our perspective, we can think the God of the Old Testament was brutal–some kind of a demiurge. Just look what warranted the death sentence in the Old Testament. But in the New Testament, God seems to have become more easy-going.

Our view is so distorted. Let’s go back to creation where the list of capital offenses was unending. Any sin was death–„The day you eat of it, you shall surely die.” The slightest sin–the tiniest infraction–the smallest peccadillo–is an act of cosmic treason. Any infraction says to God that we believe that our will trumps his and that we can do whatever we want.

We are so accustomed to grace. Like the Israelites, we need God, ask for grace, receive it, forget it, and go back to sinning–despising God’s holiness without fear of his judgment.

Now to Luke 13. Two disasters: Pilate kills worshipers and mixes the blood with the sacrifices, and the tower of Saloam falls killing 18 innocent bystanders. Question for Jesus: „What’s up with this? Where was God?” But on 9/11, God was in the same place he was in 9/10–sovereign on his throne.

Jesus did not say that these two events happened while God was asleep. Jesus did not say that God was diverted by counting the hairs on someone else’s head.

Jesus gave the same answer regarding each disaster: „You’re asking me the wrong question. If you really wanted to know about the providence of God, you would ask the real question–why didn’t the temple fall on my head? Why wasn’t it my blood.”

We are shocked by justice and presume upon grace.

I’ve been asked every conceivable theological question except, „Why did God save me?” We all harbor the idea that we deserve it. We think that heaven just wouldn’t be heaven without us. This is the greatest lie in the history of the world.

We are no longer amazed by grace and we are shocked–in total consternation–by justice.

The essence of grace is that God is not required to give it to us. If you ever feel like God owes it to you, let a light go off in your mind that reminds you that you have just mixed up grace and justice.

The hand of God holds us over the pit of hell. And you can’t give any reason for God to not drop you into that pit. That was Jesus’ message when he said that unless you repent it will be your blood mingled with the sacrifice.

If on the day of judgment I look at Jesus and he says to me, „I don’t know who you are. Please leave.”–if that happens to me–I’ll be surprised, but I also know this: I would have no ground for complaining about it. He is holy and I am not.

Our only relationship with God is by grace.
