Description

Summary
In the ancient world, specifically the Ancient Near East, to be made in the image of God was a depiction reserved for only two things: idols and kings. When Genesis uses this phrase, “image of God” it uses the Hebrew word selem for “image.” You might be surprised to learn this, but selem is often translated as “idol” in our Bibles - “the idols of God.”

Talking Points
Community of God; God's Idols; Subduing and Dominion over Earth; Ruling and Reigning on God's Behalf; Restoring the Broken Image; Jesus.
