prince at the first numbering of Israel in the second year
from the Exodus, Amminadab probably died in Egypt before the
Exodus, at the time of Israel's heaviest oppression. His

Amminadab in the Bible Encyclopedia - ISBE
a-min'-a-dab (`amminadhabh = "my people (or my kinsman) is
generous or noble"): Three persons bearing this name are
mentioned in the Old Testament.
(1) In Ruth 4:19,20 and 1 Ch 2:10 Amminadab is referred to
as one of David's ancestors. He was the great-grandson of
Perez, a son of Judah (Gen 38:29; 46:12) and the great-
grandfather of Boaz, who again was the great-grandfather of
David. Aaron's wife, Elisheba, was a daughter of Amminadab
(Ex 6:23), while one of the sons, namely, Nahshon, occupied
an important position in the Judah-clan (Nu 1:7; 2:3; 7:12;
(2) In the first Book of Chronicles (1 Ch 6:22) Amminadab is
mentioned as a son of Kohath (and therefore a grandson of
Levi) and the father of Korah. But in other genealogical
passages (Ex 6:18; Nu 3:19; 1 Ch 6:2) the sons of Kohath are
Amram, Izhar, Hebron and Uzziel, and in two places (Ex 6:21;
1 Ch 6:38) Izhar is mentioned as the father of Korah.
(3) According to 1 Ch (15:10,11) Amminadab was the name of a
priest who took part in the removal of the ark to Jerusalem.
He was the son of Uzziel, and therefore a nephew of
Amminadab, son of Kohath (= Izhar).
Amminadab in Wikipedia
(Hebrew: עמינדב, Aminadav ; "my people are generous") was a
minor character in the Book of Genesis.
According to the genealogies of Genesis and Jesus'
genealogy, he was born of Ram (also known as Aram) during
the Israelite exile in Ancient Egypt. He was also the father
of Nahshon, chief of the tribe of Judah (Numbers 1:7; 2:3;
7:12, 17; 10:14). His daughter Elisheva was Aaron's wife
(Exodus 6:23), making him Aaron's father-in-law.
In Bloodline of the Holy Grail, revisionist historian
Laurence Gardner proposes Amminadab to be Akhenaten,
allegedly the historical basis for Moses. According to
Gardner's speculation, when Thutmose IV died, his son
Amenhotep III married his sister Sitamun. Once he had
secured his pharonic throne, he also married Tiye, the
daughter of Chief Minister Yuya, who many[who?] believe to
be the biblical patriarch Joseph, son of Jacob. Because the
Israelites were gaining too much power in Egypt and because
Yuya, a foreigner, had been governor for so long, it was
decided that no children of Tiye would be allowed inherit
the throne of Egypt, but instead should be killed at birth.
Tiye's family lived in the Land of Goshen, so she went to
have her baby at Zarw, her summer palace. Her son was put in
a reed basket to float downstream to the house of Yuya's
