Castrated men. In the Bible eunuchs are usually portrayed as having positions of responsibility in royal courts. Though eunuchs were excluded from certain privileges under the old covenant, they were at no disadvantage under the new.
Eunuchs not excluded from God’s blessings if obedient Isa 56:3-5
Eunuchs could become Christians like anyone else See also Ac 8:26-39 the Ethiopian eunuch
Mt 19:10-12 Jesus Christ teaches that castration is not the only legitimate reason for celibacy. Some men may be called to voluntary celibacy because of the demands of their role in the kingdom of heaven.
