Made in the Image of God


This essay is a revision of one that I wrote for my theological anthropology subject. It proposes a covenantal meaning of the ‘image of God’ phrase in Gen 1:27 to describe the creation of humanity. When I discovered this interpretation it opened up the possibility of understanding the violence of the cross in a different way. See my ‘Christ the Saviour’ essay in the post on the atonement and violence.
