      The Image of God / the words used. Genesis , 27 employs the Hebrew words tselem and demuth (lit. image and likeness). The New Testament equiva- lents lents are eikon and , in addition to these, are.   Embedded in these words is the most wonderful of promises: God made us to reflect the image of God. God created us to be more like Him than anything else He made. He never declared, “Let us make oceans in our image” or “birds in our likeness.” The heavens above reflect the glory of God, but they are not made in the image of God. Yet we are.

      Image of God. It would be difficult to overstate the centrality of the image of God as a crucial theme in biblical theology. From the beginning of the end in Genesis (protology) to the end of the beginning in Revelation (eschatology), the image of God is crucial for understanding the flow of redemptive history. 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.

      In the beginning of the Bible in the Book of Genesis, it is revealed to use in that God has created man in his image. The text verbatim states “Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”. Genesis declares that God created man in His image. Being made in the "image" or "likeness" of God means that He made us to resemble Him in some, but not all, ways. We do not resemble God in the sense of God being flesh and blood as we are, because God is spirit (John ) and He therefore exists without a flesh-and-blood body.

At the heart of Hoekema’s argument is the frame of redemptive history. The image of God is understood in light of Creation (created in God’s image), the Fall (the image of God in man distorted), the redemption of Christ (renewal of the image of God in man), and the final glorification of the saints (perfection of the image of God in man).Cited by:   ABOUT THE BOOK: Made in the Image of God is a book for those who seek a deeper knowledge and understanding of who God is and how we as human beings relate to him physically, emotionally, and spiritually in a metaphysical way, both now and in the future.3/5(10).

Therefore, humanity is to be distinguished from the rest of earthly creation. • Humanity is, in some way, like Size: KB. Therefore, one of the things that “made in the image of God” means is that man was made to be in relationship.

This has both a vertical and horizontal component. Vertically, man was made to be in relationship with God. This is at the very heart of the Christian gospel. And the text for being in the image of God, and staying in the image of God, would be Genesis “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” — man and woman equally in the image of God as we were made.

In Genesis we read the triune God created man in His image, and after His likeness. We are the only part of creation that has this stamp on us.
