Leader of Judah Sister / Wife Priest

The phrase "a man of great wealth...His name was Boaz" led me to a study of the line of Judah and I noticed an interesting parallel between these two women. Elisheba and Jehosheba were both sisters of the rulers of the tribe of Judah and married to the High Priest (Exodus 6:23, Numbers 2:3, 2 Chronicles 22:11). Do they speak to the relationships that the Church has with Christ?

Elder Brother
John 20:17 "Jesus said to her, '...go to My brethren and say to them, "I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God."'"

Kinsman Redeemer
Ephesians 5:25-27 "Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her... that He might present her to Himself a glorious church..."
