Hear Peterson bring Jeremiah 38 to life as he celebrates one of many sexual minorities in the Bible.

Retelling this story now is especially timely in light of Kristen Beck's public coming out. Who's Kristen Beck? Just the first transgender (ex-)Navy Seal. In fact, she was a member of Team 6, the Navy Seal team that killed Bin Laden, although she retired a couple months before that mission. She probably didn't know that she was following in an ancient tradition of gender variant warriors.

The NIV doesn't mention that he's a eunuch, it just says he's a Cushite. That sucks that the translators left that out, if it originally said he was a eunuch.

Great Video, I love the Eunuch stories especially the Esther ones. Thank you for bringing these unsung heroes of the Bible. - Mummy Rivett x
