What is a eunuch?

Leave a comment


In Matthew 19:12 Jesus refers to eunuchs – men who are as a steer compared to a bull.  They are this way by birth, choice or force. 

Eunuchs are almost sexless. Eunuchs tend to be soft, mild people who are often very creative and productive.  They have less aggression by nature.  This personality is not gay or homosexual and not always a choice- this personality is that of a eunuch.

Jesus understood the usefulness of the eunuch in the work of the church.

Matthew 19:10-12

10The disciples said to him, “If this is the situation between a husband and wife, it is better not to marry.”

11Jesus replied, “Not everyone can accept this word, but only those to whom it has been given.

12For there are eunuchs who were born that way, and there are eunuchs who have been made eunuchs by others—and there are those who choose to live like eunuchs for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.”
