What did Jesus have to say about homosexuality?

All the scripture references I've seen against homosexuality are either from Leviticus or the Letters of St. Paul.
I have yet to see one from the gospels, which is supposed to tell us the words and deeds of Jesus...his life story and all his teachings.

So what, if anything, did Jesus himself have to say about homosexuality?

  • Funny how things in the OT are tossed out because 'Jesus fullfilled the law', but because Jesus never said anything out-right regarding Homosexuality, it's fine THEN to reference the OT about THAT.

    Me thinks Christians worship Paul more than God...

  • you can't find any because Jesus loved everybody and as God Jesus knew that it is genetic not sin as man has claimed

  • Hinson,

    Both of your examples are from the Letters of St. Paul.

    I was looking for Gospel references.

    Mathew, Mark, Luke, or John

    What did JESUS have to say, not Paul.

  • No. He did not mention it.

    He quoted Genesis 2:24 when he spoke in Matthew 19:5-6: "for this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh. Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder."(KJV)

  • Jesus believed the book of Genesis. He speaks of creation of the world (Mark 13:19), of man (Matthew 19:4), and of the marriage of Adam and Eve (Matthew 19:5-6). He speaks of Abel’s martyrdom (Matthew 23:35), Noah’s flood (Matthew 24:37-39; Luke 17:26-30), Abraham’s faith (John 8:40, 56), Isaac (Luke 13:28), Jacob’s dream (John 1:47-51), and Lot’s wife (Luke 17:32). But He also spoke of the destruction of the Sodomites’ cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (Luke 17:28-32; Matthew 10:15; 11:24; Mark 6:11). If there had been 5 couples in a “loving married relationship” by your perverted view, hundreds of thousands of souls would not have been destroyed. Ten righteous souls is all that were needed to spare the city.

  • Our attempt to separate the Old Testament and the New Testament and the Old Testament God and the Lord Jesus; is futile and ludicrous. Jesus is the Creator of all and the very one who instituted marriage. Marriage is the picture of Christ and His Bride (the Church) using the same compassion. “31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. 32 This is a great mystery (or revelation of God): but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.” Ephesians 5:31-33

  • Now, my previous post wasn't in specific reference to homosexuality, it was in reference to guidelines for marriage. He also wasn't specifically decreeing that marriage must be between a man and a woman. He was responded to a question asked to him "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?" The Pharisees brought up the union of man and wife to Jesus and the context was divorce, not anything else.

    This isn't to say that God doesn't condemn homosexuality. I just wanted to put the verse in context and make it clea that it wasn't specifically addressing homosexuality.

    Hinson, where does this last part come from? Is that a paraphrase from one of the verses?
