Is there a gay centurion in the Bible?

Monday, April 13, 2009


A centurion in Bible times was a non-commissioned officer in the Roman Army, commanding 100 men. Centurions are mentioned 21 times in 21 verses of the Bible.

The gay centurion is found in Matthew 8:5 and Luke 7:2. There are sound reasons to believe this centurion was a gay man. These reasons are given in detail on this page and its associated links.

There is another centurion mentioned who was present at the crucifixion of Christ, Matthew 27:54. While it is possible this centurion is the gay centurion from Matthew 8:5, these events happened two thousand years ago and there is no way to prove it one way or the other.

The apostle Peter had the privilege of leading another centurion to saving faith in Christ in Acts 10.

The apostle Paul interacted with three centurions, Acts 22:25, 24:23 and 27:1 but there is nothing in scripture to indicate that these centurions were the same individual as the centurion in Matthew 8.

It is a common misconception that the Apostle Paul spoke against homosexuality. Here are some web pages which factually refute that misconception.
