Hebrews 4:15 says that Jesus was “tempted in every way as we are – yet without sin.” I had someone mention to me a book which suggested that this must have included same-sex attraction, since otherwise Jesus was not tempted in every way the author was.
This seems to take things too far – in what is itself at any rate a theological statement rather than something that can be considered historical fact. Could one really make the case that Jesus faced every temptation that any person does? Would we not have to envisage him in the wilderness with work to do and a computer with Facebook calling him to allow himself to be distracted? Would we not have to envisage Jesus tempted by Oreo cookies and every single other specific sort of food that isn’t healthy? Can anyone really take that idea to such an extreme?
