…"eunuchs who have been so from birth," is the closest biblical term we have for someone who today we refer to as homosexual.
Reverend Jeff Miner quote:
In the ancient world, including ancient Jewish culture as reflected in the Talmud, natural or born eunuchs… they were associated with stereotypically effeminate, characteristics and behavior… As we have also seen eunuchs were commonly associated with homosexual desire.
Historical evidence beside what Jesus said, indicates that gay, lesbians and transgendered people were included in the group known as eunuchs.
