Human Sexuality among the Jews of the Old Testament: A Lesson for Nigerian Youths

Ogunmoroti B.S


The paper examined human sexuality among the Jews of the Old Testament with a view of drawing salient lessons for the 21st century youths whose lives negate sexual morality. Unlike in the old time when virginity was a pride and virtue most especially among the Jewish people of the Old Testament, the subject matter is now grossly and shamelessly abused so much that, the few who are trying to keep themselves now cannot even rear their heads in the public for the fear of being derogatorily named by the teeming youths who have seen virginity cum sexual morality as illness in this 21st century. Besides, this work made a distinction between the lifestyles of the Jews in the Old Testament and youths of today with special bias to their lifespans to puncture the popular notion that generational curses, ailments, and even hazardous use of technological inventions are the causes of the pre-mature death of 21st century youths. While the work was carried out via secondary source of information, it found out that that sexual immorality is the major cause of untimely death among today’s youth because of its both esoteric and medical implications. Hence, the paper recommended that the 21st century youths should embrace sexual morality like the Jews of Old Testament as this is the will of Yahweh.
