Human sexuality is a complex reality that permeates any person s entire human existence. Looking at sexuality through the lens provided by the authors of the New Testament, a reader obtains some insight as to how the disciple of Jesus is called to live out his or her existence as a sexual being and a disciple of Jesus. This book explores pertinent texts, using an historical-critical method of exegesis to illuminate the wisdom of the New Testament. The book examines the stories and teachings of Jesus and the letter of Paul and those who follow him in the epistolary tradition, before synthesizing into the conclusion that a viable contemporary sexual ethics should include:1) the notion of embodied existence,2) the dignity of women in God s plan,3) the overarching demands of agapaic love.
