Rabbi Tovia Singer Untwists Scripture: Did Jesus Descend from Levi AND Judah?

Did Jesus have two biological fathers?  Question: ”A christian friend of mine was saying that Jesus is the messiah basing it on the “fact” that he was descended of the tribe of Judah (just like king David = “royal line”) as well as the tribe of Levi (priestly line). What about Numbers 36 though? I thought G-d commanded the Israelites to marry within their father’s tribal clan (and does this apply in modern Jewish society?).”
