The very suggestion that there may be homoeroticism in Hebrew narrative may seem odd given the supposition that the religion and culture of ancient Israel resolutely opposed same sex erotic relationships. The apparent prohibition of homosexuality in Leviticus and the story of Sodom from Genesis have been made to speak for the whole Hebrew Bible.

"Loyalty to God offers a theological interpretation of and reflection on the Apostles' Creed by asserting that it is an oath of loyalty to the God who adopts, liberates, and empowers us.
