      Genesis a and 27 say, “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness’ So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and. women, begins with the teaching of Gen. “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” The idea that we are made in the image of God has given comfort and moral stimulus to many this doctrine defines our fundamental ethical responsibility as the imitation of God.

      So an “image” is basically an “idol,” something that manifests the presence of a god. And that’s what the Bible means when it calls us an image of the living God. We are his idols in creation, the ones through whom he intends to manifest his presence in the world. Although the Bible never makes the connection explicit, I’ve long Author: Marc Cortez.   Since the image of God in man is so debated and at times can seem so philosophically obscure, if we want to understand what it means to be created in the image and likeness of God, we must ultimately look to Jesus who is “the radiance of God’s glory” as well as the “exact representation of His nature” (Heb ).

    The Image of God (Hebrew: צֶלֶם אֱלֹהִים ‎, romanized: tzelem Elohim; Latin: Imago Dei) is a concept and theological doctrine in Judaism, Christianity, and Sufism of Islam, which asserts that human beings are created in the image and likeness of ophers and theologians have debated the exact meaning of the phrase for millennia. Following Jewish tradition, scholars such. God can love (John ) and so can we. God can hate (Psalm ; ) and so can we. Because we are made in God's image, we are able to have compassion, mercy, grace, fellowship, friendship, etc. However, as God is all-knowing, we are not. God is ever present, but we are not. So, the image of God in us means that we are like Him in some, not.
