comment "A believers' virginity" or "a believer's daughter's virginity" in 1 Corinthians 7:36-38?
Hmm... It just struck me that Corinthians were not part of Hebrew society, but rather gentiles.

comment 1st John 2:12-14: little children, young men and fathers
"By "same sex" I mean that both God and Jesus are males (as are all the heavenly host). By "intimacy" I mean, in this case "physical closeness"" - I understand that. However, it is merely your assertion that John 1:8 speaks about physical closeness. John 1:8 could well be talking about the eternal and mutual coexistence of the Father and the Son in their preexistence - that is, long before anything physical was created. John 1:8 asserts a kind of "closeness", but it does not assert that that was physical. Therefore, it is not John 1:8 that is the source of assertion here, but rather you.

(2) one of the disciples leaned back against Jesus - thus, in this case the scriptures are the real source here. However, they don't assert the fact of a same sex intimacy between the two. Thus, the source here is the interpreter that puts forth that idea, and the mentioned scriptures are merely the subject matter. I was asking for a source just to see if there are any proofs of validity for those assertions.

(1) "For this discussion the writings of "John" are the primary text and thus the truest source" - since those assertions are merely interpretations of the said scriptures, the scriptures themselves are not the source of those assertions because scriptures do not assert the points put forth in those interpretations. For example, the scriptures DO assert that
