Was Jesus Trans?

There has recently been some talk in academic circles about the idea of Jesus being trans.

In fact, one Cambridge University professor recently made headlines for arguing in a sermon that artistic depictions of Jesus throughout history seem to indicate that he has been portrayed as trans. As you might imagine, the sermon received considerable blowback, both from the people who were in the pews at the time, as well as from media outlets the world over.

Nevertheless, this professor is not the first one to try and forge a theological connection between the trans community and Jesus––even if his argument is among the most outlandish.

In this episode, we take a look at three different ways people have argued that Jesus is trans (or at least that he can closely identify with the trans experience), and discuss whether there is anything within any of these arguments that is worth taking note of.
