    Wouldn't you have to look at the original and see how the word "eunuch" was used at the time?

    I'm looking at a revised Martin Luther translation, and the word "eunuch" doesn't appear at all, and seems to make much more sense as a reply to the question of the disciples of maybe it should be better not to marry at all:

    Because some are incapable [unfähig] of marriage from birth; others are made incapable by other people; and yet others have made themselves incapable for the sake of the kingdom of heaven.
