Make a Dedication

Rabbi Eytan Yehudah Dzikowski
How did Nadav and Avihu die?
וַתֵּ֥צֵא אֵ֛שׁ מִלִּפְנֵ֥י ה וַתֹּ֣אכַל אוֹתָ֑ם וַיָּמֻ֖תוּ לִפְנֵ֥י ה׃
And fire came forth from the LORD and consumed them; thus they died at the instance of the LORD.
From here we learn, that Nadav and Avihu’s bodies were not burned, but rather, they died in a manner similar to a natural death in which the body remains intact.
Others say, that they were indeed burned (though their clothes remained intact).
Others say, that four beams of fire suddenly emerged and entered their nostrils, causing their souls to burn. Their bodies remained completely intact.
(Sanhedrin 52a, Targum Yonathan)
