Major difference between MARI/PEACE and Bauscher's NT
Shlama Akhi Runggold,

Very simple. Joseph was allowed to shave, and he was not a Levite:

Ge 41:14 -
So Pharaoh sent for Joseph, and he was quickly brought from the dungeon. When he had shaved and changed his clothes, he came before Pharaoh.

As the son of Jacob and the father of the half tribes of Ephraim and Manasseh and owing to the fact that Moses himself did not criticize it, I think this is not hard to establish. All Israelite men could grow beards but kohenim had to since we have a specific instruction:

Le 21:5 -
"'Priests must not shave their heads or shave off the edges of their beards or cut their bodies.


Ps 133:2 -
It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron's beard, down upon the collar of his robes.

There are of course exceptions in case of Nazirite vows, skin diseases that are called leprosy but were not always real leprosy, etc, e,g, Numbers 6:1-25, 8:7.
