Issues: Jews and Gender
The Bible says that both male and female are created in God’s image (Genesis 1:27). But that image has been fractured in all of us. In this edition, read the provocative lead article, “When God Had Two Genders”; thoughts from a Jewish psychiatrist; and a personal letter from a brother to his sister.
Humanity has brought sin into the world, resulting in estrangement from God, our own selves, one another and nature. We are no longer who God intended us to be—whether we identify as male, female, or one of Facebook’s 58 genders.
Sexuality is a core aspect of our identity and a part of the basis upon which we interact with others and even God Himself.
