Jesus Ruled Out Homosexuality and Polygamy

The Pharisees wanted Jesus to give His opinion on the matter of divorce, but rather than give His opinion, He quoted Scripture (Which, in His case, was His opinion!). He asked whether they had read in Genesis 1 that God had made the human race male and female, hence not two males or two females, and then Jesus quoted Genesis 2:24, adding His interpretation to it, saying, “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh” (Matthew 19:5).
Genesis 2:24 does not say, “the two,” but since Jesus is the Maker, He wanted the Pharisees to know that He did not intend in the beginning for a man to have multiply wives nor for a woman to have multiply husbands, but that one man and one woman should be joined for life.
Therefore, Jesus ruled out homosexuality, polygamy, and endless divorce and remarriage.
