    Review #17 of my 52 week book challenge The Man Jesus Loved⠀⠀Oh boy I'm gonna catch hell for this one The interpretation of historical texts often changes based on the contemporary context and lenses through which they are read For millennia books have been used to justify causes like slavery war and gender suppression They have also then been used to free calm and empower The Bible is not immune to this This book looks at one of history's most important and controversial figures the disciple Jesus is said to have loved above all others Citing a cannon of literature including Bentham Aelred and Montefiore Jennings rereads the Gospel of John through an LGBTI lens His ultimate uestion was Jesus gay? may seem sensationalistic but for those who read the book his approach is measured and hyper rational I'll leave it to you to find out what he concludes To find out why I started my 52 week book challenge what I've been reading and how you can get involved check out my original LinkedIn Publisher article or follow me

    While the first part of the book does devote itself to speculation on the identity of the 'man Jesus loved' in the Gospel of John and to the nature of their relationship the rest of the book is also a study of the attitudes revealed in the gospels and other New Testament texts toward sexuality that deviates from the presumed norm of heterosexual marriage and family life The author suggests that the traditional assignment of 'the man Jesus loved' as the apostle John is incorrect and that Andrew or Lazarus are likely candidates His reading of the text does not rule out an erotically mediated relationship and suggests that such a reading is a less tortuous one than those that only see the relationship on a platonic or spiritual level Other texts that are treated in this work include the centurion and his boyfriend the 'naked youth' in Mark and eunuchs More generally the attitude of Jesus towards biological family marriage and wedding are examinied

    Very thorough researched book Author brings new perspective insight and illumination to various uotes from the biblical texts in reference to sexuality marriage and the historical figure of Jesus This might be a bit overwhelming for anyone orthodox in Christianity Must be read with an open and curious mind It really brings forward the true Jesus tradition
