The following paper is a modified version of chapter two in my M.A. thesis, "Paul's View of Male Homosexuality: An Exegetical Study."  I have shortened and simplified it to make the data more accessible (like deleting much of the overly technical details and transliterating the remaining Greek).  While my writing has improved since I originally wrote my thesis, I have left my wording the same except for a few minor changes.  I wrote my thesis before Robert Gagnon published his important work, The Bible and Homosexual Practice: Texts and Hermeneutics.  My paper, however, can aid the average reader wanting more insight into the Romans 1 text.  May it bring much glory to Christ.
