BaphometSgl

Pro

Jesus chooses to be surrounded by Males, all his apostles was Males, isn't that shows to us that Jesus had a Homosexual behavior, or at least that he hates womens ?

isn't that make it obvious why in the bible mention about 7 times that homosexuality is sin, so he can cover himself because the society he lived it wasn't pro with gay sex and he will exposed if he don't mention that he hates homos?

Con

My opponent states that merely because of the fact that Jesus of Nazareth was surrounding by his male apostles that he was in fact a homosexual. There's multitudes of problems with this. First, abstinence from relations was common in rabbinic culture and Jewish tradition. Second, it was oft said that Christ was in marriage between himself and the Church. Third, he was a homeless migrant without funds nor money and he probably hadn't had a shower in a while, meaning he wasn't exactly a Romeo. Arranged marriage was likely impossible as others write in the Gospels that his parents didn't buy his supposed act and con job and believed him to be a fraud. It was unlikely he was going to get any help from them. Regardless, he wasn't wealthy enough to suade fathers to deflower their daughters, as appropriation was the norm. Forth, if he was in fact as pure as lamb and white as snow, this would be deviated by him having sexual relations.

Under the (shaky) assumption that Jesus of Nazareth engaged in relations, Paul isn't the most viable option. First, Saul's conversion on the road to Damascus and the good works afterwards were all after the crucifixion. At no point does Paul meet a material Christ as recorded in the Gospels. Second, the disciple which Jesus loved such as in John 23, was one of the 12, oft interpreted to be John. Third, the non canonical Coptic Gospel of Thomas in the Nag Hammadi library stated that he was married to his wife. Many have speculated that the Galilean carpenter was with Mary Magdalene too.

Overall, the likelihood in which Jesus had relations are equivalent to that of a camel going through the eye of a needle, and even if that was the case, there are multiple, much more viable options as compared to Paul.
