Show Information

Biblical characters David and Jonathan feature quite prominently in present discussions about the Bible and same-sex relationships. But what was actually going on between the two in the narratives of the Hebrew Bible? Are they depicted as brothers-in-arms, platonic friends, or intimate lovers? Dr Anja Klein (The University of Edinburgh) explores the biblical portrayal of the two figures, and asks what that means for present discussions about same-sex relationships. Why is it so popular to quote the Bible in these conversations, and is that actually the right thing to do?
