Do You Think Jesus Was Gay?

A few iteams I ponder on...Please explain..I have often wondered...Do you think the historic Jesus was gay or maybe had relations with men?

"In the Gospel of John, the disciple John frequently refers to himself in the third person as 'the disciple whom Jesus loved'

During the Last Supper before Jesus' execution, the author(s) of the Gospel of John describes how the "beloved" disciple laid himself on Jesus' inner tunic -- his undergarment. See John 13:25 and 21:20. Robert Goss, assistant professor of comparative religion at Webster University in St. Louis, LA, noted that Jesus and the beloved disciple: "... eat together, side by side. What's being portrayed here is a pederastic relationship between an older man and a younger man. A Greek reader would understand." 5 Jesus appears to have loved all of his male and female followers in a close, trusting, non-erotic manner.

During the crucifixion, in John 19:26-28, Jesus is described as seeing his mother and an unidentified man: "the disciple standing by, whom he loved." Again, Jesus probably loved all of his 12 or 70 disciples in a non-sexual manner. But this particular disciple is identified as "the" disciple who Jesus loved. That might indicate a special intimate relationship with one special disciple.

 

Mark 14:51-52 describes the incident when Jesus was arrested by the religious police. It describes how one of Jesus' followers was scantily dressed. The King James Version says he had a linen cloth cast on his naked body; the size and location of the cloth is not defined. The New International Version says that he was "wearing nothing but a linen garment." When the police tried to seize him, they were able to grab only his cloth; the man ran away naked. Reverend Peter Murphy wrote: "We don't know from the sources what really was going on, but we do know that something was very peculiar between Jesus and young men." 11

That disciple was, of course Jesus' wife Mary Madgalene. Ref, Gospel of Thomas and shown it the Da Vinci painting: "The Last Supper"

Do You Think Jesus Was Gay?

I don't think he existed. And if he did, does it really matter that much who he may or may have not slept with?

The idea that Jebus was gay is stupid. The entire Babble, both OT and NT, contain anti-homosexual references and perpetrate an overall anti-gay attitude.

 

Also, since Jebus said that he and the "Father" are one, it means that Jebus is the same god as Yahweh in the OT, who is depicted handing down the death penalty for homosexuals.

 

Jebus is depicted as simply perpetuating the stigma about sex and sexuality that existed in some ancient religions and cultures. He isn't depicted as engagin in sexuality since sexual conduct makes one "unclean" according to the OT, for one. And where he is said to have "loved" this guy or that, it is clearly platonic or even brotherly love (as if a monster of a god can have such emotions), not romantic or sexual love.

 

But foremost, since there is absolutely no evidence that Jebus ever existed to begin with, the question is kinda moot.

 

However, to suggest Jebus was gay is sometimes said as a slur against Jebus, and while I'm all for slurring and defacing that sick religion, there's nothing wrong with being gay, so using it as a slur is wrong in itself.
