About Zadok HaKohen, The High Priest

Please see this regarding uncertainty of Zadok's origins: "All the information about Zadok’s priestly lineage is thus found in the Chronicler’s account and not in the Deuteronomistic history. As a result, scholars have voiced doubts about Zadok’s family ties. Could it be that his Aaronite ancestry is nothing but a fabrication which seeks to legitimize his office as priest?"
