HeBAI author Idan Dershowitz writes an article for the New York Times...

... explaining his research to a popular audience.

His article will be published in the upcoming Sunday's issue of The New York Times.

His research article has been published in the current issue of Hebrew Bible and Ancient Israel (HeBAI):

Idan Dershowitz, Revealing Nakedness and Concealing Homosexual Intercourse: Legal and Lexical Evolution in Leviticus 18; pp. 510-526(17)

Abstract of his HEBAI article:
The list of forbidden unions in Leviticus 18 reflects comprehensive revision that obscures its original character. The motive for reworking this passage was to reverse the original text's implicit sanctioning of male same-sex intercourse. This conclusion finds support in additional biblical and ancient Near Eastern texts.
