God Created Man in His Own Image Adam & Eve


NOTE: This post goes great with our “Timeline”. The timeline has helped so many people better understand the Bible. The timeline allows you to separate chronologically different times in biblical history. By seeing and identifying and understanding a specific period in biblical history and how God was dealing with mankind at that specific time. Makes Bible Study so much easier, fun and understandable. The timeline is the only tool used in our classes (Bible & Timeline) and it has helped everyone from new Christians to Pastors with many years of experience. If you haven’t already please download the timeline here.

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2 Timothy 2:15

 We will be uploading new content that covers each section of the “Timeline” weekly.

Adam & Eve
4004 BC
Genesis 1:26-28


On the sixth day of creation, God created man in His own image.

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 that creepeth upon the earth. 27. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created He them. 28. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Genesis 1:26-28

Man Created in the Image of God

So God created man in his own image,…” I have to make the point that God didn’t have ears, a nose, feet and so on. God is Spirit. (John 4:24) The Triune God did take on flesh when the Son, Jesus Christ, stepped out and took on flesh. (Galatians 4:4)

So what does the text mean “in His Own image”? Let me answer by asking a question. What parts of the human make up are invisible?  Our mind “thoughts”, our “will”, our “emotions” or our personality. These are all real, you have thoughts, we all have emotions. We can’t see them, touch them but we know they’re real. That’s the area that God is at work in believers, the spirit and soul. (Hebrews 4:12)


Spirit, Soul and, Body


Mankind is made up of a spirit, soul and a body. (1 Thessalonians 5:23)


  • The spirit is where mankind is connected to God.
  • The soul is the seat of our emotions.
  • The body is where we have our senses; smell, touch, taste, hearing, sight. The body is also where we manifest our emotions.


Since we are born sons and daughters of Adam we are all born sinners. (Romans 5:12) It is because of Adam’s disobedience that ALL MANKIND is separated from God. The gospel is the only way back to God. 1 Corinthians 15:1-4. The moment a person believes the gospel, God steps in and makes you a new creation (Ephesians 4:24)

Take a look at the image on your left it is a representation of a person’s nature before the believing the gospel and the image on the right is what happens after a person believes the gospel


We will enlarge on sin and the sin nature when we cover the “The Fall” in a future post. This will be a detailed study on sin and how it has been misunderstood by most in Christendom.
