The Revd Dr Jonathan Tallon has written a series of articles on aspects of the Bible and homosexuality, with associated videos. Nothing unusual there, you might think – there must be hundreds if not thousands of such articles – but Jonathan Tallon’s are remarkably good, helpful, clear, and academically reliable; the Equal Campaign is delighted that he has kindly given us permission to list them here and to link to the original articles and videos.
Jonathan Tallon is a priest in the Church of England and is also a mentor for curates in the Diocese of Manchester. He is a New Testament lecturer and early Church researcher, and is currently tutor in Biblical Studies at Northern Baptist College. There’s a full biography at https://www.bibleandhomosexuality.org/about/.
The articles below, and the accompanying videos, are all on Jonathan’s website at https://www.bibleandhomosexuality.org/. Here’s some of what they cover:
- What does the Bible say about homosexuality, sexuality and gender?
- What have different scholars said about homosexuality in the Bible?
- Is homosexuality a sin?
- What does the Bible say about people who are transgender?
- Clear presentations of these and other complex issues, with pointers to key academic resources for those who want to go further.
Each article (but not the corresponding video) finishes with a useful section of Resources if you want to look into the topic in more depth. There is also a helpful annotated bibliography at https://www.bibleandhomosexuality.org/bibliography/.
