A German Protestant youth group has put together a 2006 calendar with 12 staged photos depicting erotic scenes from the Bible, including a bare-breasted Delilah cutting Samson's hair and a nude Eve offering an apple.
"There's a whole range of biblical scriptures simply bursting with eroticism," said Stefan Wiest, the 32-year-old photographer who took the titillating pictures.
Anne Rohmer, 21, poses on a doorstep in garters and stockings as the prostitute Rahab, who is mentioned in both New and Old Testaments. "We wanted to represent the Bible in a different way and to interest young people," she told Reuters.
"Anyway, it doesn't say anywhere in the Bible that you are forbidden to show yourself nude."
Bernd Grasser, pastor of the church in Nuremberg where the calendar is being sold, was enthusiastic about the project which is explained online at www.bibelkalender.de.
"It's just wonderful when teenagers commit themselves with their hair and their skin to the bible," he said.
It will be officially launched at the weekend.
Seriously... what is the deal with Europeans and nudity?
If you're going to give us Biblical nudes, you have to give us something spiritual. The lifeless Christ in the Pieta is nearly nude, so laid bare, so powerful. We see the Virgin mourning, we feel her pain, we see the flesh of Christ sacrficed.
And then we have this little gnome in this German caldender... *sigh*
oh dear heaven.
not in my church ping
If you have to ask, you'll never understand, Osama.
I guess they got tired of invading each other's nations?
There's no need to make porn out of this. A read from the Bible's "Song of Solomon" will give you all the biblical eroticism you could possibly want.
Snippet: ""There's a whole range of biblical scriptures simply bursting with eroticism," said Stefan Wiest, the 32-year-old photographer who took the titillating pictures."
OPINION: Hell is never full as Mr. Wiest will eventually find out.
For that matter, what's the deal with calendars and nudity?
These days it seems like everyone just has to go out and make a nude calendar of themselves. A novelty calendar is now one where people in it wear clothes. I guess this article proves it.
But it doesn't explain why…
The next time Europe decides to have a war, let's not show up.
Yeah, a nude calendar nowadays is like an alcohol-themed bar.
Preach on brother. We don't have near enough sermons from that book. Most people don't want to admit what is in there.

CH Spurgeon has some very good writings based upon the Song of Solomon. He utilizes the intense love between the bride and His wife as representative of Jesus and the Church. But, of course, that is too deep for people who are simply looking to look for what they deem erotic.
Poor Ms. December. Always a bridesmaid but never a bride. :-)
