A one-night class surveying the Bible’s diverse and sometimes questionable sexual ethics and where we go from here.

Purchase Access to Recorded Session

Have you ever heard the term “biblical sex ethic” and thought to yourself, “Wait, what does the Bible say about sex?” Does the Bible talk about dating? Does the Bible outline rules for sex inside and outside marriage? Is polygamy a thing in the Bible? What about parts of the Bible that seem to celebrate harmful sexual ethics? This class will survey the Bible’s diverse sexual ethics and ask the question, Where do we go from here?

Topics We'll Cover:

Why sex in the Bible is not always coherent and not always ethical
What intercourse means in the Bible
What was considered sanctioned sex and unsanctioned sex in the Bible
How sexual standards were different for men, women and foreign women
Sexual ethics in the OT and NT
Possible ways forward to talk about sex
