‘It’s heresy!’It’s heresy!’ Worshippers were left in tears after a Cambridge dean claimed that Jesus was TRANSGENDER.

‘It’s heresy!’: Worshipers left ‘in tears’ as Dean of Cambridge claims Jesus was a TRANSGENDER after row over Christ’s ‘vaginal look’ wound

  • Cambridge research student claimed that Christ had a “transbody” during a sermon
  • He compared Christ’s side wound depicted in medieval paintings to a vagina
  • Church worshipers shouted ‘heresy’ at the dean of Trinity College as they left

Church worshipers shouted ‘heresy’ at the dean of Trinity College when they left a sermon claiming that Jesus may have been transgender ‘in tears’.

But the view of a transgender Jesus is “legitimate,” according to Dr. Michael Banner, the dean who stepped in to defend last Sunday’s sermon claim that Christ had a “transbody.”

Dr. Michael Banner, the dean of Trinity College, supported junior research fellow Joshua Heath, who exhibited Renaissance and medieval paintings of the crucifixion with a side wound he likened to a vagina for the congregation.

The side wound “takes on a distinctly vaginal appearance,” said Heath, whose doctorate was supervised by former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams.

“In the simultaneous male and female body of Christ in these works, if the body of Christ as these works suggests the body of all bodies, then His body is also the transbody,” the researcher claimed.

Heath used Jean Malouel’s 1400th-century painting Pietà with the Holy Trinity, on display at the Louvre, to illustrate his point, according to The Daily Telegraph.

During the sermon, the 1990 work ‘Christs’ by the French artist Henri Maccheroni also appeared, as well as Bonne’s prayer book in Luxembourg.

In a letter to the dean, a believer writes: ‘I left the service in tears. You offered to talk to me afterwards, but I was too sad. I despise the idea that by cutting a hole in a man through which he can be penetrated, he can become a woman.

“I especially despise such imagery when applied to our Lord, from the pulpit, to Evensong. I despise the idea that we should be invited to contemplate the martyrdom of a ‘transchrist’, a new heresy for our time.’

Others said they felt unwelcome at the church, adding that the children present were visibly uncomfortable.

But Banner wrote a letter defending the sermon, seen by The Telegraph, saying: “For myself I think speculation was legitimate, whether you or I or anyone else disagrees with the interpretation, says something different about that artistic tradition, or opposes its application to contemporary questions of transsexuality.’

However, he said he would not extend an invitation to anyone he thought would deliberately want to shock or offend the congregation, or who he expected to speak out against the Christian faith.
