Dear 100 Hour Board,

Can you explain Matthew 19:12 to me? Specifically, who are those who were born eunuchs from their mothers' womb?

-Not so born


Dear Not Bourne,

A eunuch is someone without external male genitalia, who in biblical times was neither classified as male or female. My first guess was that this scripture refers to people born without clear male or female genitalia, probably due to some sort of intersex condition. This stack exchange backs up that idea.
