    CHAPTER 1. Genesis , CREATION OF HEAVEN AND EARTH. 1. In the beginning--a period of remote and unknown antiquity, hid in the depths of eternal ages; and so the phrase is used in Proverbs Proverbs God--the name of the Supreme Being, signifying in Hebrew, "Strong," "Mighty." It is expressive of omnipotent power; and by its use here in the plural form, is obscurely taught at. On the Incarnation De Incarnatione Verbi Dei By: St. Athanasius Creation and the Fall. n our former book[1] we dealt fully enough with the creation of the world and with God its Maker, for the first fact that you must grasp is this: the renewal of creation has been wrought by the Self-same Word Who made it in the beginning.

    Further, in the creation of man he was made in the image and likeness of God (Gen. ). No development in evolution could ever take an animal and produce in it that which corresponds to the image of God. The revelation that man is the object of God’s creation is not simply taught in one passage but in many.   Wow. I think this might be my favourite Moltmann book so far. The chapters on 'The Time of Creation', 'God's Image in Creation' and 'The Sabbath: The Feast of Creation' are particularly powerful, but the whole book is a beautiful outworking of a theology that takes ecological concerns seriously/5.

The first chapter addresses the relationship between God’s creation of humankind in God’s image and union with Christ, the latter resting on the basis of the former (9).

The Trinitarian nature of God is evident in Scripture’s creation account, where we discover God to be a relational being who creates the heavens and the earth (Gen The Incarnation: Why did God become Man. by Dr Jonathan D Sarfati. First published: 23 December (GMT+10) Re-featured on homepage: 23 December (GMT+10) This is the pre-publication version which was subsequently revised to appear in Creation 35(1)– Abstract.

Man: The image of God. by Prof. John Rendle-Short. According to the Bible, the first man was perfect, made in the image of God (Genesis ).Luke goes so far as to call Adam the Son of God ().In his allegorical novel, Voyage to Venus, C.S. Lewis 1 paints a word picture of the dawn of history.

He makes Adam resemble Jesus Christ. Not the Soul. Genesis says that God made humankind in his “image” and “likeness.” Both terms mean the same thing, and so this is usually referred to as “image of God” (imago dei).Some understand image of God to mean those qualities that make us human, for example: possessing a soul, higher-order reasoning, self-consciousness, consciousness of God and the ability.

Creation in the image of God, means that the human creature, distinct from all other creatures, was created with the capacity for godliness [= ‘God-like-ness’]. Humans were created with the ability, the role and the responsibility, not to be God, but to express the.

God does take pleasure in his creation. The Testimony of Genesis 1. How do we know this. Genesis 1 describes for us not only the fact of an ordered creation by God, but also God’s response to his creation. Five times, you recall, God stands back, as it were, and takes stock of his creation.

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.

To fully understand and appreciate this book one has to understand why Athanasius wrote it—in defense of Christ’s full divinity and against Arianism, an emerging theology of the time that suggested Christ was begotten from the Father, therefore not eternal, and thus subordinate to the Father/5.

The doctrine and the mystery of Word become flesh, God become man, and Creator taking the form of His creation to restore it unto Himself is presented by Athanasius in a form that is short, direct, and overflowing with insight conveyed in simple language/5. Creation: One Hebrew word sums up the picture of Genesis 1 and 2: shalom.

Peace. Peace. Earth was full of God's shalom, the kind of peace in. Three scriptures in the book of Genesis refer to our being created in the image of God (Genesis Genesis [26] And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing.

God became incarnate to redeem fallen humankind and renew all creation. In addition, Christ, the Son of God—the incarnate, redeeming Word—is also the creating Word, who made the universe in. 26 Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, after our likeness, so they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move on the earth” (Genesisemphasis mine).

It is difficult to miss the connection between Psalm and Genesis Man's creation in the image of God, from the very beginning of the Book of Genesis, bears witness to his call. This call is fully revealed with the coming of Christ.

Thanks to the action of the "Spirit of the Lord," there opens up the perspective of the full transformation in the consubstantial image of God, which is Christ (cf. 2 Cor ). "Whoever sheds man's blood, By man his blood shall be shed, For in the image of God He made man.

John Behr. Saint Vladimirs Seminary Press, At the end of this life, death is one certainty we share. But in his little book, Becoming Human, Father John Behr reverses the order and claims that the certainty of our life begins through Christ’s willingness to die.Anselm: Why the God-Man?

In this article I will explain God’s redemption of humanity in Christ as articulated by the medieval theologian Anselm of ically, I will explain Anselm’s view of what God did for humanity in Christ, and why only a God-Man—i.e., one who was both fully human and fully divine—could have performed the work.The creation narrative puts forward what is perhaps, along with the doctrine of the incarnation in the New Testament, the most remarkable concept for making God known in all of Scripture, the image of God (Gen ; ).

This distinctive of creation meant that God related to humankind personally and imparted something of his own nature to.
