While many Catholics think of the “theology of the body” as a great classic of sexual/marital ethics (which, of course, it is) John Paul II thought of his lectures as “a contribution to a theology of the body”. I have always thought that the meaning implicit there is that there is a whole lot more that can be enlightened by a consideration of the biblical “beginning”, and your title implies, perhaps, that you think so also.
