Genesis 1:26 (Part #5)

3. Plural "US" & Plural "THEM"

Carefully observe that Genesis 1:26-27 does not just refer to "US" but also to "THEM." Now examine the "Us and Them" interplay in this passage.

Legend: singular plural

And Elohim He said, "Let us make adam in our image, according to our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the beasts and over all the earth, and over every moving thing that moves upon the earth." And Elohim He created the adam in His own image in the image of Elohim He created him male and female He created them. And Elohim He blessed them and Elohim He said, "You be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it and rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the heavens and over all life that moves upon the earth.... I give to you..."

Trinitarians only seem to see a singular vs. plural interplay for Elohim yet they completely fail to see that their is a singular vs. plural interplay concerning ADAM. But Adam is not a multi-personal being. If we can speak of Adam in this manner, this fact tells us that Elohim is not a multi-personal being either.

4. Rhythmic Parallelism of Genesis 1:26

And G-d created ADAM in His own image, in the the image of G-d He created him, male and female He created them.

Since we already know that ADAM is both singular and plural, we are compelled to conclude that the image and likeness of "Us" is "THEM," "male and female."

THEY were created in the image of US.

5. OUR image = THEM

Observe how the facts of this passage direct us to conclude that the image of "us" is "them."

ELOHIM

ADAM

Singular

He created
His image

created adam
created him

Plural

Let us make
Our image
our likeness

let them rule
male and female
created them

"Let us create.... in our image....

Let them rule... He created them.

The image of plural "US" in question is plural "THEM": "Male and Female"

This shows us that "THEM" is the image of "US."

6. The Image is a Copy which reflects the Original

We know that we can look at the image of something to know what the original looks like. If we look at the picture on the jigsaw puzzle box, we know from this image what the original puzzle looks like. So instead of appealing to our imaginations concerning the identity of "us" at Genesis 1:26, let us look at the image of "us" to determine what the original "us" looks like.

The image and likeness of "us" is "them." The image and likeness of "us" is "male and female." So if we look at Adam and Eve as the image of G-d then we can figure out what the original is. Since "male and female" are the image and likeness of G-d, we can look at this reflection and understand what the US and OUR of Genesis 1:26 looks like. If the image of G-d is "male and female," then in some sense the US and OUR of Genesis 1:26, is MALE and FEMALE. And if that is so, we can look at Adam and Eve and understand that they are the image of "us" at Genesis 1:26.

How to Determine the Identity of "US" at Genesis 1:26

Take a careful look at the picture below of a bride and bride-groom. Notice how the image and likeness in the water is an image and likeness of the bride and bridegroom, "US." If we could only see this image in the water, we would also know what the genuine reality looks like. Let's call call the image of these two in the water, "Adam and Eve."

The upside-down image of this male and female in the water is an image of the original and genuine reality at the top of this picture. If for some reason, we could only see the image in the water, we would still know exactly what the original reality looks like. We really don't need to see the top half of the picture to know. And that is the situation we have at Genesis 1:26. We know what the image of "us" looks like. The image of "us" is plural "male and female." Therefore, we also know what the original looks like.

Since the facts of this passage direct us to conclude that "male and female" are the image and likeness of "us," we must then proceed to identify who "us" might be and how "us" is both male and female. Since G-d Himself is depicted as a "male" in Scripture, we need to look for a "female" counterpart. We need to find G-d's helper just as Eve was Adam's helper.
