Mary, the biological sister of Aaron?
This lengthy diatribe that Muhammad mistook Jesus for Esau (brother of Jacob) is based
on this passage:
"Then she brought him to her own folk, carrying him. They said: O Mary! Thou hast come with an amazing thing. O SISTER OF AARON! Thy father was not a wicked man nor was thy mother a harlot."
The Christian IDOL-WORSHIPPERS claim that since the MOTHER of ESAU was REALLY the BIOLOGICAL SISTER of AAROON the Prophet made a "mistake."
However, It is clear that Mary WAS figuratively
a "O SISTER OF AAROON" - WHY?
Because both the Bible and Quran agree she was a LEVITE i.e. a member of the tribe of hereditary "cohens" or "priests" in Judaism. (All
ultimately descendants of Aaroon)
How do I know this? Mary's cousin was Elizabeth
whom we are told "belonged to a priestly family"
(Luke 1:5, 36). See also Quran 3:35-36 (stating
Mary was descendent of priestly line of Imran).
A female descendent of the hereditary priesthood could quite properly be called a "sister of Aaroon!
