In the Image and Likeness of God

Videos, by CGP.


Why does God care about humanity? The answer to this question is found in part in the book of Genesis. But this is only the beginning of the story. Here God declared, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness and let him have dominion over the earth.” The Psalmist adds to our understanding of God’s purpose in that he created human beings with a glory that was a little lower than ‘elohim’ (God). Jesus in answering the religious leaders of his day, proclaimed that he was a son of God, and yet this should not have astounded them as it did. For Jesus made the same kind of bold declaration as the Psalmist in calling men ‘elohim’ or sons of God. John, James and Paul all added insights regarding Christ’s being the image of the Father and the firstborn son of God. But the Father has a plan to bring many more sons and daughters – made in his image – into his family. Knowing this basic truth these biblical writers offer us wisdom as to how we should live our lives now in preparation for this glorious future.
