An Intersex Jesus and Gay Marriage in Early Christianity?

Some early Christians appear to have believed Jesus was intersex, that is, born with both male and female genitals, just like one to two percent of babies born today.

At the same time, some gay Christians in the Roman Empire left material remains documenting that they celebrated their marriages in death as in life.

This month is a time to consider what the relationship may have been between these two historical phenomena.

Join Westar scholar Dr. Ally Kateusz for a fascinating look at how early Christian art illuminates patterns in the ancient data that are changing the way we look at Jesus as well as same-sex marriage in early Christianity.
