Nadab And Sapphira Comparison

220 Words1 Page
The Old Testament story of the sudden demise of the priests, Nadab and Abihu, has at least two similarities to the New Testament story with analogous demise regarding the dishonest church attenders, Ananias and Sapphira. In the first three verses of Leviticus chapter ten, Aaron’s sons, Nadab and Abihu, determine to present an unauthorized fire to the Lord. Likewise, in the first eleven verses of Acts chapter 5, Ananias and Sapphira are dishonest regarding the sale of their land for an offering to the Lord. In both of these instances, God was not honored in their sacrifices. He never commanded the Nadab and Abihu to burn the incense at this specific time. Nor did God, through the church, demand the complete profit from the estate sale.
