The Bible Bash Podcast

Enuchs and Jesus and Pronouns, Oh My! Mx Chris Paige — Matthew 19

September 28, 2019

Special guest Mx. Chris Paige joins Liam Hooper and Peterson Toscano to share excerpts from their new book, Otherwise Christian--A Guidebook for Transgender Liberation

Chris reads from the Chapter, Zey Jesus, and reveals the discomfort some people have about gender neutral pronouns, especially when attached to Jesus of Nazareth. Chris also discusses Matthew 19: 11,12, the only passage where Jesus directly references eunuchs. Along with Liam and Peterson, they talk about this incredibly important passage, and the significance it has for each of them. 

Chris then reads the "Other Text." They share the poem, A Litany for Survival by Audre Lorde, the Black, lesbian, womanist, poet.  

Mx Chris Paige uses they or zey pronouns, though some of their older writing may have other identifying features.

In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Peterson, cisgender gay Bible scholar and co-host, trans Bible scholar, Liam Michael Hooper take turns presenting the text. They then discuss. In addition, each episode they present another text, a non-Biblical text of note--religious or secular--that may or may not correspond to the Bible text.
