Bible and Sexuality | Dominican University College

This course will present what the Bible says concerning sexuality. We will look at different aspects: marriage as related to household, ownership and inheritance, divorce, adultery, rape and seduction, prostitution, incest, same sex intercourse, men and women in community and leadership issues and finally celibacy. We will also try to identify the broader assumptions which underlie these Biblical sayings. This course will show the students how to study a Biblical theme (methodological dimension) and how Churches use the Bible in their teaching on sexuality (hermeneutical dimension).
