Thou Shalt, Thou Shalt Not, and Thou Might Want To… The Bible and “Forbidden” Sexuality in Judaism and Christianity

For far too long the Bible has been regarded as a prim taskmaster that seeks to divorce sexuality from spirituality and to connect physical pleasure with guilt. The Bible has another message, however. What is commanded, what is forbidden, and what is encouraged can all lead to healthy sexual expression.

Amy-Jill Levine is E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of New Testament Studies, and Professor of Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt University Divinity School and College of Arts and Sciences
