    See Matthew 1:25 and Luke 2:7. These describe the birth of Jesus, noting that he was a boy.

    Why is there any doubt? What research prompted the question?

    @Lesley Please note that OP appears, from his icon, to be an Indian gentleman and his question may be prompted by the concept of asexual embodiment of Hindu deities.

  • @Lesley From my conversation here, there also appears to be a language and culture barrier about the meaning of "man" and "gay." The question was not worded quite right.

    I was going to edit this to try to make sense out of it...but I don't think it's actually possible.

1 Answer 1


Luke 2:21-24 documents that Jesus was circumcised on the 8th day after his birth, and his parents offered a sacrifice at the temple which is necessary for a firstborn son, according to the Law of Moses.

21 After eight days, when it was time to circumcise him, he was named Jesus, the name given by the angel before he was conceived. 22 Also, when the time came for purifying them according to the Law of Moses, they brought him up to Jerusalem to present him to Jehovah, 23 just as it is written in Jehovah’s Law: “Every firstborn male must be called holy to Jehovah.” 24 And they offered a sacrifice according to what is said in the Law of Jehovah: “a pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.”

Circumcision implies that Jesus was male and had a penis. The Bible as a whole is completely consistent about this, always using male pronouns and referring to him as a man and son. There's no doubt that there was any abnormality in this regard.

The Bible does not mention Jesus having a wife. Jesus taught that if a person can make room to remain single for the sake of God's Kingdom, he should remain single and not get married. (Matthew 19:10-12) Jesus set a good example for single people in this matter.

  • Do Jesus as any sexual feeling

  • Probably. I don't have any reason to think that he didn't. He certainly didn't sin though.

    @John No, that's not in the Bible. God made humans with a sexual desire so that they would marry and have children and accomplish his purpose for humans to fill the earth. God did not create humans to be sinful.
