Continue Your Bible Study with Questions and Answers on Leviticus 8-14
In Leviticus 8:23 why did Moses put blood on the tips of Aaron and his sons, upon the thumbs of their right hands and upon the great toes of their right feet? The blood of the ram was placed on their ears, their thumbs and their toes. The placing of the blood on these places of the priests was symbolic way of saying that their ears, their hands and their feet should all be used in the service of God. They could not serve God properly without this sacrificial blood being applied to their bodies. This is symbolic because no one can serve God properly without first have the blood of His Son applied to their hearts.
In Leviticus 9:1-4 why all of the offerings? They had to prepare themselves to see the glory of the LORD as recorded in verses 23 and 24.
In Leviticus 10:1 why did they offer strange fire? I am not sure what prompted their actions. They just saw the glory of the LORD when fire came down from heaven and whether they got excited and wanted to join in the festivities or what, I am not sure. No matter what they were self willed and reckless and their actions (and fire) were totally unacceptable to God.

The white scabs would soon slough off.
