Beginning

Listen to the "Beginning"
Read the "Beginning"
Then God said, "Let us make human beings in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." So God created human beings in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

God refers to himself in both the singular and plural form. The first hint of plurality within the Godhead. The very first chapter in the bible points ahead to the Trinity? In the beginning ...

  3. I would agree the angles were there. In fact according to Job "all the angels shouted for joy" when God created the earth.

    I appreciate your thought, and I could be wrong about who exactly God was referring to as "us" and "our image" but in reading John 1:1-18 where we learn that Jesus was "with God in the beginning" (John 1:1) and "the world was made through him" (John 1:10) it is reasonable to conclude that the "us" includes Jesus. In addition we learn from Hebrews 1:2-4 that Jesus was involved in creating the universe.

    I am also not aware of any verses that attribute angles with creating the world.

    Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.

  4. also Colossians 1:15-16

    "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; ALL THINGS WERE CREATED BY HIM AND FOR HIM." (caps added by me)
