About Queen Tamar (Tephi) .


18) Johanan [Yohannan], the crown-prince (above), eldest son of (17) King JOSIAH, was the father of an only child, a daughter, Tamar[-Tephi] (19) Tamar[-Tephi] (daughter), who, according to the judicial-ruling made by Moses (Num 28:8) and its conditional clause (Num 36:8), was technically the dynasty's heiress. The possibility that Tamar [whose epithet was "Tephi"] may have been the heiress to the throne is not improbable, for, although inheritance among the Jews was according to the male-line, if there were no sons the inheritance of property [in this case, the kingdom] went to the daughter (Num 27:8), on the condition (Num 36:8) that she marry "inside her father’s house" [in this case, the Davidic Dynasty, i.e., the royal house], usually to the next-of-kin in the male-line, otherwise she would forfeit the inheritance. The Jewish scribes normally did not include daughters in the Bible genealogies, and left Tamar out in 1 Chr 3. Her insertion into the royal pedigree at this point resolves all the problems in this portion of the royal genealogy that without her there would be no solutions.
