The New Testament’s References to Same-Sex Sex in their Greco-Roman Cultural and Historical Context

My project is a collection, assessment, and examination of ancient descriptions of, and attitudes toward same-sex behavior. By establishing a broad Greco-Roman cultural setting, I will examine Paul's references to same-sex behavior. This will bring forward commonalities and differences. The goal is to paint an accurate picture of the ancient perceptions of same-sex behaviors and those in the New Testament. I will demonstrate that the ancient perceptions of same-sex behaviors and those in the New Testament solely rely on the unjust use of another body for sexual satisfaction.

Course description

“We’ve Got Spirit, Yes we do:” Sanctification in the Acts Church

Abstract: The Greek word pneuma offers insight into the difference between salvation and sanctification as understood by the Acts church. Salvation is cleansing from sin, symbolized by water images including water baptism. Sanctification is filling with the Holy Spirit, symbolized by air images including a dove. The word pneuma means spirit, breath, air, or wind. This essay suggests that the Acts church would have conceived of sanctification as exchanging our human breath, for the Holy Breath of God.
