    Gagnon offers the most thorough analysis to date of the biblical texts relating to homosexuality. He demonstrates why attempts to classify the Bible's rejection of same-sex intercourse as irrelevant for our contemporary context fail to do justice to the biblical texts and to current scientific data. Gagnon's book powerfully challenges attempts to identify love and inclusivity with affirmation 5/5(4). The New Testament Opposes Homosexuality In the light of such clear statements from the lips of Christ, there really is no need for any other verse in the New Testament condemning homosexuality. Whether we like it or not, the Book of God and the Lord Jesus Christ resolutely oppose it. And the beloved Son of God is a lot wiser than us lot.

    I decided to ask a real expert to deal with the question, my friend Jeff Siker, PhD in New Testament who has just retired from a 30+ year career teaching biblical studies at Loyola Marymount, and who has edited two books that address Christian views of homosexuality, the one he mentions below in his answer () and a more recent reference.   Robin Scroggs was Edward Robinson Professor of Biblical Theology, Union Theological Seminary, New York. His Fortress Press books include Paul for a New Day (), The New Testament and Homosexuality (), Christology in Paul and John (Proclamation Commentaries, ), and The Text and the Times: New Testament Essays for Today ().Price: $

    Homosexuality and the Bible: Two Views is a debate between Dan Via and Robert Gagnon, both New Testament professors. Via takes the view that the church should affirm gay marriage, Gagnon affirms the traditional view of homosexual sex as sinful/5. New Testament on homosexuality Denying God's purpose The ELCA Conference of Bishops, meeting in retreat March 2, heard two papers examining what the Bible says about homosexual behavior. They were presented by Terence E. Fretheim, professor of Old Testament, Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minn., and Walter F. Taylor Jr.

In this matter, the New Testament reinforces what the Old Testament had declared since the Law was given to Moses (Leviticus ). The difference between the Old and New Testaments is that the New Testament offers hope and restoration to those caught up in the sin of homosexuality through the redeeming power of Jesus.

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on J Verified Purchase. This book is an excellent, erudite appraisal of the culture and times of the New Testament and provides detailed exegesis of the background and context of the New Testament passages referring to homosexuality/5(18).

The basis for Scroggs' reasoning of homosexuality as being okay is that the homosexual culture in New Testament times is vastly different from today's homosexual culture. But if you are going to take that road, our ENTIRE culture is "different" from New Testament culture and thus there now seems to be license to throw out all moral/ethical /5.

The teaching of the Old Testament, the New Testament, the 7th commandment, the 10th commandment, the teachings of the Apostle Paul, and our Lord Jesus Christ, all condemn homosexuality as SIN.

References are to be found only in writings associated with Paul. In light of this confusion, Robin Scroggs, Professor of New Testament at Chicago Theological Seminary, attempts to define the use--as well as abuse--of the Bible in debates about homosexuality.

The author's primary aim is to describe the model of homosexuality and the attitudes toward it in the Judeo-Greco-Roman : Robin Scroggs. The Book of Leviticus in the Old Testament has two references condemning homosexuality: "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable" (Leviticus ) and "If a man lies.

The book starts out with a brief overview of various positions on homosexuality taken by different Christian sects, and how those different positions are claimed to be supported by Scripture. Then he takes a historical approach, going into detail about the cultural background of the time and place where the New Testament was written, which Cited by:   Robin Scroggs The New Testament and Homosexuality: Contextual Background for Contemporary DebateFortress Press pages I came upon this book on a friend’s shelf when I was housesitting for him and I unashamedly stole it.

As a seminarian at the time, and a pastor now, I am always on the lookout to better. The most authoritative verse against homosexuality is in the book of Romans verse Romans “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; (men with men) working that which is.

Q: What is the book's message. Imbaza: On reading, in their contexts, the biblical texts relative to the topic of homosexuality, one is obliged to see that the Bible's position is clearly against homosexual practices.

A healthy reading of the Bible, both of the Old as. Yesterday Jeff Siker, PhD in NT and editor of two books that discuss biblical/Christian views of homosexuality, started his summary and assessment of what the Bible has to say about same-sex relations, in light of the recent vote of the United Methodists not to welcome “self-avowed practicing homosexuals” in their churches.

"The New Testament and Homosexuality makes a valuable contribution to the current debate within the Christian tradition about homosexuality. It seems to me that all those church leaders and committees who are deciding how to deal with homosexuality and whether or not to ordain gay people ought to study this book carefully before making their.

Just what is a proper use of the Bible, especially the New Testament, in Christian debates about acceptance of homosexuals. In addition to bringing clarity and honesty to issues of the relevance of the Bible, this work brings a little more light and a little less heat to the discussion, a little more acceptance of all persons on the "other side," and maybe even an awareness that in Christ.

Rev —The final book of the Bible, finalizing a complete picture stunning denouncements of all forms of homosexual conduct. From Genesis to Revelation, the Word of God firmly establishes once and for all the sinfulness of homosexuality, but also provides a wide opportunity for repentance and redemption through Jesus Christ.

realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed.

It is a mistake for people to mix topics intended only for Israel with topics that included the non-Israelites. Furthermore, when we see that the New Testament condemns the idea of homosexuality in Romanswe could see the continuity between Old Testament moral law and New Testament moral law. Three divisions of the Law in Leviticus.

So, The reason why homosexuality in the Bible is still a sin is because the moral laws are still intact from the Old Testament.

In addition to just the Old Testament, Jesus and Peter also preached against sexual immorality as a whole. Notice the root word of immorality is moral.The main chapters in the Old and New Testament that deal with the issue of homosexuality are: Old Testament: Leviticus29; ; Genesis 19 (see also Genesis 18 for the context and problem of unrighteousness that existed in Sodom and Gomorrah).
