As great-grandson of Levi, Aaron is among the priestly class of Levites. His family?s altar duties turn tragic when his sons Nadab and Abihu disobey sanctuary rules and are killed by fire. Another son, Eleazar, later succeeds Aaron as chief priest? Like Moses, Aaron is also a figure of faith in Christianity and a prophet in Islam? The title character in D.H. Lawrence?s 1922 novel, Aaron?s Rod, carries a flute.
