  Strange Fire

Gereshom 2009/10/17

The definition of fire is the active principle of burning, characterized by the heat and light of combustion, something burning, as fuel in a furnace, strong feeling; excitement; ardor & vivid imagination, These are few descriptions of fire.

The definition of strange is of another place or locality; foreign; alien, not previously known, seen, heard, or experienced; unfamiliar, quite unusual or uncommon; extraordinary & queer; peculiar; odd.

With these definitions let us go and look at the scriptural verse that these words are used in.

We read: And Nadab and Abihu, the sons of Aharon, each took his fire holder and put fire in it, and put incense on it, and brought strange fire before יהוה , which He had not commanded them.

What is this fire? Many questions have been raised and many a discussion discussed concerning this issue of Strange Fire. Yet no answer is forthcoming. So the question again, What is this Strange Fire?

At first when I looked at this portion of Torah it reads straight forward. But the question is why did these two men die as a result of their actions. Why?
