Jonathan was the son of Saul , king of Israel , of the tribe of Benjamin , and David was the son of Jesse of Bethlehem , of the tribe of Judah , and Jonathan's presumed rival for the crown. David became king. The covenant the two men had formed eventually led to David, after Jonathan's death, graciously seating Jonathan's son Mephibosheth at his own royal table instead of eradicating the former king Saul's line. The biblical text does not explicitly depict the nature of the relationship between David and Jonathan. The traditional and mainstream religious interpretation of the relationship has been one of platonic love and an example of homosociality.
Were Ruth and Naomi, the centurion and his servant, David and Jonathan, and the Ethiopian eunuch all homosexual or bi-sexual? One of the more creative efforts is to discover relationships in the Bible narrative that must have been homosexual and are seen positively; thus the conclusion — The Bible endorses loving committed homosexual relationships and God blessed them. Is that true? Ruth and Naom i — They were two widows, lost and alone in the world. They loved each other as mother and daughter. They joined their lives for survival and concern for the well-being of the other.
I want to share one of my very favorite stories in all of scripture. The story is about Jonathan and David. Now, in our world, we might not glorify such vigilante justice, but in the ancient, warrior culture that gives us the story, David was thought to be heroic for killing an enemy of his country, especially since so many skilled warriors had been unable to do so. David becomes somewhat famous, and starts running with the big dogs. Saul then devised a plan to have David killed on the battlefield.
Your love for me was wonderful, more wonderful than that of women. . But Jonathan Saul's son delighted much in David: and Jonathan told David, saying, Saul.

David loved Jonathan. Jonathan, ever the valiant warrior, died in armed combat with the Philistines. David loved Jonathan and all of David's mighty men were aware of that fact. For fifteen years they had facilitated David and Jonathan's relationship, enabling them to meet secretly, without King Saul discovering where David was hiding. Every love story doesn't have a happy ending. When D and J parted for the last time recorded in the Bible, they undoubtedly believed they would see each other again soon, 1 Samuel
I reasoned as you, but there was one specific verse I could never defeat, which clearly implied sodomy. I put it out of my mind until I'd be more knowledgeable and able to handle it. One year ago it easily scandalized me and my weak, stumbling faith, and lead to doubt. I have since grown and as I read this post I was reminded of it and, emboldened, went back for it: [1 Samuel ] Then Saul being angry against Jonathan said to him: Thou son of a woman that is the ravisher of a man, do I not know that thou lovest the son of Isai to thy own confusion and to the confusion of thy shameless mother? Now, however, it is obvious that it is nothing but the disgusting detraction of a wicked man who does not understand the beautiful bond between David and Jonathan. A verse which the Holy Ghost had written down to demonstrate the character of Saul and no one else.
