This is beautiful. I was chatting with my buddy Andrew tonight and he had some thoughts on Jesus and sex. So, his thoughts are below – but the above graphic work is of course his…and beautiful:
Everyone’s laughing about the freak who’s the 40-year-old virgin, and who doesn’t think he’s a freak. And yet, Christians worship a 33-year-old virgin in Jesus. Has sexuality so become the defining mark of our personal existence that Jesus would be rejected if he lived today because of his lack of sexual expression alone? And maybe, with sex holding such a powerful grip on our modern psyche, Jesus IS rejected by people today not because of his radical social policies, but because of his freaky “no sex” lifestyle….Does Jesus’ apparent lack of sexual involvement during his life actually act as something that prevents the (post)modern mind from accepting his humanity…and divinity….?
