Was Jesus Christ an EUNUCH?

Was Jesus Christ an EUNUCH? Topic: Use case statement in view

Question: Think about it. It's said in the bible that if you have lust in your heart (not even acting on it) you have committed a sin. Jesus supposedly never sinned in his life, but he lived way past puberty. How can a man that is completely human-as the bible says he was-possibly not have any sexual thoughts, unless he was missing a certain part of his anatomy? Wow! People are really afraid of this question!!

He could have been gay, loved his mum, hung around with 12 blokes.. Ok, The sugestion is, apparently, provocative....even asking the question is sacrilege, blasphemy, a vilification of Christianity, and could be seen as a mockery of people's deepest beliefs. However, I think it makes more sense than thinking he was an enuch? There is nothing in the Christian Scriptures (New Testament) which specifically identifies Jesus' sexual orientation. The Bible does not say clearly whether Jesus had a heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual orientation. It is silent on whether Jesus was celibate or sexually active; single or married, childless or with children. However, since there is no precise statement about Jesus' sexual orientation in the Bible, we can safely start with the assumption that Yeshua of Nazareth/Jesus was a heterosexual. Probably only about 5% of males have a homosexual orientation -- both in ancient Judea during the 1st century CE, and the modern world today. So, without considering any other factors, the chances of Jesus being gay is very slim -- about one in twenty. The vast majority of Christian theologians have probably never seriously considered the possibility that Jesus was gay. If they were asked their opinion on the question, the vast majority would probably consider him to be heterosexual; many probably assume that he was devoid of erotic or sexual feelings. On the other hand, there is an often quoted concept that reading the Gospels is like looking down a well. What you see in both cases is a reflection of yourself. Social activists often view Jesus as a social activist. Spiritual people frequently look upon Jesus as spiritual. Heterosexuals may see at Jesus as a heterosexual. Homosexuals may look upon him as gay, etc. He was accused of being a party animal who consorted with the dregs of society -- prostitutes, tax collectors, etc. Yet there is no record of them accusing him of being gay. In 1st century Judea, same-sex behavior among men was a most serious offense, worthy of the death penalty. If Jesus were gay, and if the Jewish establishment knew of his orientation, they would certainly have used it against him. Yet there is no record in the Gospels or in subsequent Jewish literature of the topic ever having been mentioned. On the other hand, the story might have never made it into the Gospels. Alternatively, the account might have appeared in early writings, but censored in later Gospel drafts. 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.

some people believe that by using these terms, they can receive anything without a doubt = thinking that a god, up in the heavens, is signing a check, or approving a credit card purchase, so they can have anything they want:A Very Expensive House or their worries gone (instead of dealing with their challenges in life through knowledge and self-understanding, which we all as human beings CAN Do), or by using these words, & terms they think they'll receive any healings mentally, physically, emotionally, psychologically for themselves or for someone else. I am not saying that My Way, My Philosophy of life IS the Only Way !! But in Buddhism, it is taught that we, as human beings have ALL the abilities, all the power, all the talents, and all the skills already within us (sometimes they may need to be Cultivated a bit) to attain anything we need in this life through our own Logic and Understanding. Their god taught them to believe him for the miracles he did. Buddhists suspend judgment on whether or not there is a god, UNTIL there is enough infallible Proven, Evidence given to convince us that there is a creator god, in which to pray to ! Atheists do NOT have to Prove anything to anyone that there is Not a god, it is those who believe in a creator god, which they pray to = that Must prove through Scientific Evidence to us, that there is a creator god. And with all the religions out there, argueing with one another, that they alone have the true infallible words of god, written in their holy books, and that they alone know the one true god, yet they all ridicule, mock, and condemn and judge each other harshly while their god tells them NOT to Judge (Matt. 7:1-5): with all this going on - this unwholesome treatment and , not setting a good example, but being such Hypocrites, = what makes them think that Atheists, and Buddhists will ever trust, or believe in their god, or their way of life ? There is ALOT in which they have to try and prove to us atheists, especially the irrefutable evidence of a god, before we'll ever even consider to convert to their religion ! Atheist have nothing to defend. We are Very Firmly Established People with our Philo- sophy of Life. To give up Logic as well as Self-Understanding, AND to begin to live a life by a mere blind faith is NOT some- thing we would be so readily willing to do ! !

It would be highly unlikely that Jesus could have been physically a eunuch. The deliberate emasculation of boys (and men) was strictly forbidden by Jewish Law, and the community of Jesus' time was extremely conservative in regards to the Law. Whether the organs were removed deliberately or accidently didn't matter: the male in question was excluded from the Jewish community, and would not have been allowed within the Temple. Since Jesus displayed extreme loyalty to the OT Law, and routinely walked into and out of the Temple, we can safely assume that Jesus was physically whole. Jesus would not have to be a eunuch to be free from lust. The removal of male organs would not remove any sinful desires in that area, any more than cutting off a child's hands would eliminate an urge to steal. Sin does not start at the tip of the body, but at the heart and mind. Lust is not restricted to physical desires, either, but is simply an abnormal (toxic) desire for something that is totally normal in its proper context. It is possible to lust after possessions or power or prestige, for example, and those things can be completely non-sexual. Eunuchs DO have sexual thoughts and feelings, btw; the removal of the male organs does not remove thoughts or desires. Depending on when the male is emasculated (before or after puberty) will affect certain things. If it is done before the boy reaches puberty, then he will not grow "properly" into manhood, due to a lack of testosterone. If done after a man has already grown up, then very little changes. Some researchers have discovered a curious trend in ancient Rome. Certain wealthy ladies kept male eunuchs as lovers; their emasculations were only partial, removing only the testes and not the penis. This left the men fully able to function for coitus, but unable to father children. They were, effectively, the ancients versions of "boy toys".

You know, that's only like an 8-point word in Scrabble, assuming you're not on a colored double- or triple-point square.

Since Jesus is a figment of their imagination, he can do whatever they want him to do (or not do whatever they want him to not do).

That is an interesting thesis. How do you account for the staying power of the concept? Mankind can't stay focused on any goal for a whole generation, but Christianity has been fairly consistent for two thousand years, and Judaism for three thousand. The link goes to a history of public schooling that goes back about 2500 years, then and now concentrating on making slaves of people. Humans can't keep it up that long without spiritual guidance.
