What Jesus Said about Homosexuality

Author Melinda Penner Published on 04/07/2015

Did Jesus say anything about homosexuality? That’s the challenge offered to Christians who cite the Bible as the basis for their convictions about same-sex marriage. My answer: Jesus said something in Leviticus 18:22–23, 20:13, Romans 1:26–27, 1 Corinthians 6:9, and 1 Timothy 1:10.

The Bible’s view of the Bible is that it is God-breathed. 2 Timothy 3:16 says, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” Jesus is God, therefore all of the Bible is His Word, not just the parts in red in the four Gospels.

Jesus spoke about everything from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21. And that includes anything in the 66 books about homosexuality.
