Homosexuality & The Old Testament

Listen in as Dr. Peter Goeman from Shepherd’s Theological Seminary joins us to unravel the truths and common misconceptions about biblical sexuality. Together, we tackle the contentious interpretations of the word “homosexual” in the Bible and the cultural attempts to invalidate its teachings in the modern context. Dr. Goeman brings his expertise to the forefront, emphasizing the importance of understanding the original languages to faithfully apply the Scriptures to our lives.

In our thought-provoking conversation, we navigate the challenges of interpreting and applying Old Testament laws, especially concerning discussions around homosexuality. Dr. Goeman shares insights from his dissertation, focusing on the relevance of Old Testament passages to the New Testament, and we confront arguments that aim to sidestep these scriptures based on contemporary perceptions of love. The discussion also explores the role of special revelation in shaping our ethical framework and the resources available through Calibrate Ministries for parents of LGBTQ children. Join us to gain clarity on the complexities involved in understanding ancient laws to today’s society, and to understand the distinctions between misinterpretations and the true intent of Scripture.
