Mary- from the line of David?

There is also strong evidence in the Bible for a connection between Mary and the tribe of Levi, specifically, the Aaronic priestly line. Note that Elizabeth is mentioned as a kinswoman/cousin, and she, as the wife of a priest, had to be a female descendant of Aaron. That would give Jesus not only a connection to the throne, but to the priesthood as well.

Granted, Jesus’ connection to the priesthood would not be recognized, because it probably came through his maternal grandmother’s line, but it is still interesting that our Great High Priest very well could have had Aaronic blood in his veins.
