Sexual morality is one of the most discussed yet often misunderstood aspects of the Bible. Now, renowned New Testament scholar Fr. Raymond F. Collins provides you with an overview of just about everything that the New Testament has to say about sexual responsibility and ethics. In this 12-lecture audio course, you will come to understand some of the most controversial and complex topics in the Bible, encountering a diverse range of topics we've all had questions about in well-known and overlooked passages alike. You will begin by examining the letters of Paul, which echoed a Jewish perspective for the achievement of holiness under the influence of God's gift of the Holy Spirit. These letters address issues that ordinary people confront in their daily lives, and you will consider Paul's famous saying, "It is well for a man not to touch a woman." For centuries, this passage was seriously misunderstood, leading to a distortion of Paul's views on human sexuality. Next, you will examine Jesus' sayings on sexual ethics, such as His commentaries in Mark 7:21 and 9:42-48 and his teaching on the Sixth Commandment at the Sermon on the Mount. You will then look at the story of Jesus' encounter with the sinful woman and at the interpretation of Sodom and Gomorrah in the New Testament. Finally, you will conclude with the Christian view on marriage as found in Ephesians. With Fr. Collins's guidance, you will gain a clear understanding of some of the most frequently debated topics in the Bible.
