Could you write about Tamar David's daughter, she is interpreted to be a priestress according to Wikipedia. She was ready to marry her half-brother, so it seems to be an accepted practice, but Moses' law seems to forbid it?
Tamar was not a priestess. She belonged to the ruler-priest caste. She had a famous ancestor named Tamar who lived in Jericho. That Tamar married Salmon. The name Salmon is a variant spelling of Solomon.
