SUMMARY: After reading the article The Value of Human Life and watching Image of God Biblical Theme, dig deeper into the doctrine of the image of God with this four-part series that details the history of the doctrine and what the philosophy means for Christians and how they live in the world. The historical context that Tim Mackie and Jon Collins bring to the conversation cements the fact of how revolutionary Genesis 1 is and continues to be, although it is often lost on modern Christians.
While the podcasts are dense with information it is worth the time invested as the image of God explains how a Christian’s everyday work, the so-called mundane, is important to God and mandated by him.
KEY QUOTES: “God is for humans and he is for his world. He personally bound his own self to this world in the image of God that is Jesus. Humans can find their new humanity restored according to the true image of God by binding themselves to Jesus and letting Jesus restore the image within us so that when the kingdom of God is fully realized in the new creation the story can go where God wanted it to go.”
