People give all kinds of explanations as to what it means to be made “in the image of God”—often saying the Image is our intelligence. But that’s not what the original language of the Bible is trying to say to us. Being made in the image of God is not just an adjective, in fact, it may be better understood as verb. In a recent message at a youth retreat, I explain what the Image is and how Jesus is the clearest example of it that we’ve ever been given.
This message was much informed by Chapter 5 of Michael Heiser’s, The Unseen Realm, under the heading, “Image or Imager?” This book has been life-changing for me and is easily in my top three.
