Abstract :
The book of Numbers devotes ample space to Eleazar, Aaron's third son who becomes heir to his father's priesthood after the mysterious death of his two older brothers, Nadab and Abihu. The article shows how Eleazar's destiny is marked, at every important stage, by someone's death, a fact which favours his rise to the high priesthood. The analysis of the texts suggests that the dynasty of Zadok could be the priestly group interested in putting forward Eleazar's figure.
