What is the deeper message of the genealogy of the daughters of Tzelafchad that is recorded all the way back to Yosef? What is the deeper connection of this idea to the story of Eliyahu/Pinchas?

    great podcast….just wondering, why not mention that pinchas comes from the tribe of yosef also? its a gemara darshening from the daughters of putiel, and they learn that he comes from yosef who putput his yetzer….also the arizal learns from that that pinchas is a gilgul of yosef…
