Among those with major roles for notable women from the Bible are Esther ,  composed for private performance in a nobleman's home in , revised into a full oratorio in , Deborah , first performed at the King's Theatre in London on 17 March ,  Athalia , first performed on 10 July at the Sheldonian Theatre in Oxford ,  Samson ,  premiere performance at Covent Garden theatre in London on 18 February , and Jephtha ,  premiered at Covent Garden on 26 February Classics scholar Kyle Harper references the historian Peter Brown as showing sexuality especially female sexuality was at the heart of the early clash over Christianity's place in the world.
Views on sexuality in the early church were diverse and fiercely debated within its various communities; these doctrinal debates took place within the boundaries of the ideas in Paul's letters and in the context of an often persecuted minority seeking to define itself from the world around it. In his letters, Paul often attempted to find a middle way among these disputes, which included people who saw the gospel as liberating them from all moral boundaries, and those who took very strict moral stances. These conflicts are thought by many scholars to have impacted Bible content in the later Pauline Epistles.
The sexual-ethical structures of Roman society were built on status, and sexual modesty and shame meant something different for men than it did for women, and for the well-born than it did for the poor, and for the free citizen than it did for the slave. Harper says: "The model of normative sexual behavior that developed out of Paul's reactions to the erotic culture surrounding him In Paul's letters, porneia , a single name for an array of sexual behaviors outside marital intercourse , became a central defining concept of sexual morality, and shunning it, a key sign of choosing to follow Jesus.
Sexual morality could be shown by forgoing sex altogether and practicing chastity, remaining virgin, or having sex only within a marriage. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
