My friends, Welcome Back.
Now, my friends, as during the months of May, June, 2019 we have completed our 'first asides' - 'the blessed hope'; 'the living hope'; and the 'now' 'abundant' life - all based on the meanings from the Holy Bible. Let us look at another 'topic' we said we would get to - 'chastity'. Continuing from July 6, 13, 20, 27, 2019.
Now excerpts from such as Bibliography W. G. Cole, Sex and Love in the Bible (1959); R. Pattai, Sex and Family in the Bible and the Middle East (1959); The Standard Jewish Encyclopedia (1959), 1693, 1924, 1925; O. Piper, The Biblical View of Sex and Marriage (1960); R. Marcus, tr., The Antiquities of Flavius Josephus (1966), Bk. IV, Ch. VIII.
Some words to ponder for more understanding, to wit: 'SEX'
'C. Sexual intercourse. Similarly, sexual intercourse is not referred to directly. Rather, terms such as: “becoming one flesh” (Genesis 2:24) relating to the marriage relation; a man’s “knowing” his wife or another woman (Genesis 4:1, 17, 25; Judges 19:25) and “lying” with a person or animal (Genesis 34:7; Numbers 31:17, 18; Deuteronomy 22:22) are used to refer to sexual intercourse. Such expressions tend to emphasize the intimate nature of the sex act and the concept of “knowing” one’s wife may have a relationship to the Fall and the knowledge of good and evil with its sexual overtones (Genesis 2:17 and 3:7).
The Scriptures manifest a clear awareness of the emotional and intimate nature of sexual intercourse along with the companionship involved between two lovers (Song of Solomon). The primary purpose of sexual intercourse stressed in the Scriptures is procreation (Genesis 1:28). Sexual intercourse outside of marriage is condemned along with prostitution and other types of sexual activity which were not related to procreation (Exodus 20:14, 17; 22:16; Leviticus 18:6-18; 19:20). Sexual intercourse with animals by either males or females is forbidden (Leviticus 18:23; 20:15, 16).(Read More...audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html)
'D. Sex education. Sex education according to present standards was largely unknown in ancient Israel. Apparently children learned about sex either through parental instruction or by personal experience. Sex instruction through the Scriptures or in public instruction was limited to statements regarding the expected role of the male and female in reproduction and warnings against the misuse or abuse of sex or the body.
The OT specifically condemned a number of activities connected with the body and the sex organs. Some of the things which were condemned included: exposure of the sex organs (2 Samuel 6:20); adulterous interest in another man’s wife (Leviticus 18:20); the enticement of a virgin to commit sexual intercourse (Exodus 22:16); sexual intercourse with animals, mentioned earlier (Leviticus 18:23); homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13); incest (Leviticus 18:6-18; Deuteronomy 27:20, 22); prostitution (Deuteronomy 23:17, 18); intercourse with an engaged slave (Leviticus 19:20); and related subjects.(Read More...audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html)
It should be mentioned that polygamy was practiced in early Israel and men were allowed to have sex relations with their concubines. However, polygamy was replaced by monogamy in later Israel; and the Scriptures teach that while polygamy was permitted by God it was never ordained by Him (Matthew 19:3-8). Monogamy was the practice of the first humans, Adam and Eve (Genesis 1-5).
In contrast to the surrounding nations, the Israelites possessed a lofty moral code even though they did not always live up to this ethic. They we not indwelled with the Holy Spirit.
Has God changed? [Numbers 23:19; 1 Samuel 15:29; Isaiah 31:2; 2 Corinthians 1:19]
Be blessed. And, please return Saturday, August 10, 2019, as the Lord wills. Amen. Amen.
