Lent 2015: Same Sex Issues and the Bible

BACI’s study for 2015 deals with one of the major issues which has been causing division within the Anglican Communion and within the Church of Ireland. The issue is the one of same-sex relations and the Bible.

As in the previous four studies, the study consists of five weeks.

Week 1. The Teaching of Jesus.
Week 2. Leviticus – the prohibitions of Chapters 18 and 20
Week 3. Genesis 1 and 2 – Implications from the Creation narratives
Week 4. Romans 1.18- 32 – Paul’s teaching on unnatural and depraved sexual activity
Week 5. 1 Cor.6.9-11. & Acts 10–11. Sin lists, condemnation and redemption

The authors this year were Rev. Dr. William Olhausen, Rev. Dr. Ginnie Kennerley, and Rev. David Compton.

The Study is available for free download in PDF. We offer two color versions, with A4 (sized for printing as A5) and A3 covers, as well as ones with a black and white cover, also A4 and A3.

  1. I have 2 questions and a comment.

    Would it be okay for a United Methodist Pastor in Texas to use this study provided by the Church of Ireland? I am of Irish descent if that helps. (Sorry… American humor)

    I love the content and context. If anyone needs to study what the Bible says about Economic Justice, it is us Americans.

    Finally… when will it be available?

    Rev. Dr. Joe Miller,Jr

    I’ll keep checking back. Thank you and blessings!
