Heavenly Delights

A long time ago I read a Bible, flipping though it looking for all mentions of wolves and dogs (I was working on a story about a religious werewolf at the time), and I remember coming across a story about a man meeting an angel. It said the man saw a young, handsome guy (the angel) and “followed the dog”.

I didn’t get it at the time. Why did they call the angel a dog?

Many years later I learned that “dog” is Biblical slang for a common male prostitute, so apparently the angel was posing as, well, a male prostitute for some reason.

I can for the life of me not remember in which book and I’ve tried searching for it but haven’t been able to find it. I definitely remember reading it though because it stuck out as being weird to me at the time.

Also, because I’m terrible I used Medieval angel art as inspiration for this.

EDIT: Angels being sexless is a fairly new idea. In the Bible they are definitely men with dicks. That’s where nephilim comes from

This left me curious, so I went looking for it. I didn´t find any instance of an angel being referred to as a dog, but I find lots of times amoral people are described as dogs. An exemple is Revelation 22:13-16 I am the First and the Last. I am the beginning and the end. Those who wash their clothes clean are happy (who are washed by the blood of the Lamb). They will have the right to go into the city through the gates. They will have the right to eat the fruit of the tree of life. Outside the city are the dogs. They are people who follow witchcraft and those who do sex sins and those who kill other people and those who worship false gods and those who like lies and tell them. “I am Jesus. I have sent My angel to you with these words to the churches. I am the beginning of David and of his family. I am the bright Morning Star.”

Is that the origin of some gay men calling each other bitches?

From Genesis 19:
4) Before bedtime, men both young and old and from every part of Sodom surrounded Lot’s house. They called to Lot, “Where are the two men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so we can have sexual relations with them.”
5) And Lot said unto them, "Thou shalt look but not touch."

The book of Tobit is the first Biblical story with a dog that comes to mind:
5:4 Therefore when he [Tobias] went to seek a man, he found Raphael that was an angel.
5:16 So they went forth both, and the young man’s dog with them.
