LGBT Themes in Scripture


Jesus, The Centurion and his Lover

There are strong grounds for seeing the well known story of how Jesus healed the Centurion’s “servant” as an example o the Lord’s openness to gay relationships, as the historical and linguistic context suggests that the relationship involved was more than just master-servant, but also sexual and emotional.  For a good exposition of this argument, see Jack Clark Robinson, in  the Gay & Lesbian Review.
