Hi Chris
Depends what you mean by Image I mean all those who are Christ's and are in the first resurrection all of them with Christ as the head will be Mankind in the image of God.
Not one individual man Not forgetting man was created to look after the planet.

Love and Peace

Hello @Dave,

Thank you for answering my question.  It is important that we understand each other.

Adam was made in the image of God, though that image was subsequently marred through sin. It is yet to be restored in resurrection, as Rom. 8:29 reveals: 'For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son.'

A bone of contention what does man in Gods image look like in the first place? I don't think a man like me is in the image of God.
said make man in our image how many dose the word our imply we know we have two men who have been created in Gods image Israel and Christ.

* We are told that man was made in the image of God. I believe that Adam was made in the image of He Who was to come (Christ), Who was God made manifest (1 Timothy 3:16). For Adam is a figure, or a shadow of Him who was to come, as we see by reading such passages as, 1 Corinthians 15:45-49.  Christ is the image of God (2 Corinthians 4:4), made in the likeness of men (Philippians 2:7) for the purpose of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:19).

* Israel is a nation and not a man, unless you are referring to Jacob whose name was changed to 'Israel'. Although spoken of collectively, as 'My son, even My firstborn' by God, to Pharaoh in Exodus 4:22-23, in comparison with the 'firstborn' of Egypt. Also in Hosea 11:1, and declared as having been fulfilled in Matthew 2:15. This was again a figure of Him Who was to come.

... Moses was the Head of the nation the priesthood was his helper the woman his Eve the people were the children.
The only difference with Christ is he is king and high priest his bride is the church his Eve his helper all this will come to pass at his second coming this is man in the image of God the word man should be understood as mankind in the image of God.
So the end of creation is all those who belong to Christ living on this planet in love peace and harmony under our King And High Priest Jesus Christ this is mankind in the image of God.

* Regarding Moses: - who ruled over Israel as God's Mediator, and Aaron the Priest, his Divinely appointed helper - are you saying that you believe this to be a figure of Christ (the Lamb) and His Bride?

* Regarding the end of the creation of Adam:- It is said of those who are born from above by God's grace:- 'And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.' (1Corinthians 15:49) .  This will take place at the resurrection of the dead.

* The goal of the ages is expressed in, 1 Corinthians 22- 28:-

'For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order:
Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His coming.
Then cometh the end, when He shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father;
when He shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.
For He must reign, till He hath put all enemies under His feet.
The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
For He hath put all things under His feet.
But when He saith all things are put under Him,
it is manifest that He is excepted, which did put all things under Him.
And when all things shall be subdued unto Him,
then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him,
that God may be all in all.'


'Wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Having made known unto us the mystery of His will,
according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself:
That in the dispensation of the fulness of times
He might gather together in one all things in Christ,
both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in Him:

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance,
being predestinated according to the purpose of Him
Who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will: ... '

Hello @davetaff,

In relation to the types and shadows of the Old Testament: we are told in Luke 24:27 and Luke 24:44:-

'And beginning at Moses and all the prophets,
He expounded unto them in all the scriptures
the things concerning Himself.'


'And He said unto them,
These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you,
that all things must be fulfilled, which were written
in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms,
concerning Me.'

 
* Our Lord Himself confirms that the Old Testament Scriptures concern Himself, and that He and what He accomplished, is the fulfillment of them.

* So the Lord Jesus Christ is pre-figured by type and shadow in the Old Testament Scriptures. 

* It is said in 1 Corinthians 10:11, concerning God's dealings with Israel:-

'Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.'
(1 Corinthians 10:11) 

* So the history of Israel, with their sin and rebellion, and God's dealings with them, are examples for us to learn by.  They are types and shadows (Hebrews 10:1 & Colossians 2:16-17).  The ceremonial law was also a shadowing forth in type of New Testament realities.(Hebrews 9:24).

* I believe that the only way that we can be sure that something we read in the Old Testament is a type or shadow of something within the New Testament, is if the Holy Spirit within the New Testament designates it to be so. That Adam was in some respects a type of Christ Romans 5:14 makes clear:-

'Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses,
even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression,
Who is the figure of Him that was to come.'

(Rom 5:14) 

* Melchizedek (Genesis 14) is typical of the priesthood of the Lord Jesus.  We know because we are told so in Hebrews 7:3 and Hebrews 15-17.

* Moses the Prophet, the mouthpiece of God, is a picture of the greatest of all prophets, Christ Himself (Deuteronomy 18:15-19, Acts 3:22-23). 

* The sacrificial lambs of the Old Testament were all foreshadowing the Saviour (John 1:29; 1 Corinthians 5:7).

* The Manna in the wilderness finds its fulfilment in Christ (John 6:30-35). The brazen serpent also was a type of Christ (John 3:14-15).

* The Tabernacle was a picture of the lord's humanity, (Heb. 10:20).  The smitten rock (Numbers 20:11), typified the Lord Jesus Christ as 1 Corinthians 10:4 asserts.  Joshua, the captain of Israel and leader into the promised land, prefigured Christ.  The name Jesus, being the Greek equivalent for Joshua (Hebrews 2:10; and Hebrews 4:8).

* Last but not least, the context of any passages must determine the meaning of it.  One verse, although maybe having some personal significance for us, should always be considered in the light of the context in which it comes, and not taken out of context to fit what we perceive to be a likeness to Christ, or a type or shadow of Him and His work.

Thank you
In Christ Jesus

Depends on who Adam is and what God looks like 
Heb_1:3  Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;         this is only said of Christ no other person in the whole of scripture so Christ is Man in the Image of God
So did Christ as a man look like God or will he look like God at his second Coming 


* We are told that man was made in the image of God. I believe that Adam was made in the image of He Who was to come (Christ), Who was God made manifest (1 Timothy 3:16).

think I can agree with most of this jest a question of who the first Adam is I say its Israel because

Mat_2:15  and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet, ?Out of Egypt I called my son.?      This applies to both Israel and Christ so Nation of Israel is Gods son the first Adam the image of God   


* Israel is a nation and not a man, unless you are referring to Jacob whose name was changed to 'Israel'. Although spoken of collectively, as 'My son, even My firstborn' by God, to Pharaoh in Exodus 4:22-23, in comparison with the 'firstborn' of Egypt. Also in Hosea 11:1, and declared as having been fulfilled in Matthew 2:15. This was again a figure of Him Who was to come.

Yes Israel is a nation and as such the Image of the God and the  heavenly host

* Regarding Moses: - who ruled over Israel as God's Mediator, and Aaron the Priest, his Divinely appointed helper - are you saying that you believe this to be a figure of Christ (the Lamb) and His Bride?

Yes

* Regarding the end of the creation of Adam:- It is said of those who are born from above by God's grace:- 'And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.' (1Corinthians 15:49) .  This will take place at the resurrection of the dead.

1Co 15:49  Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven. 
Mystery and Victory
1Co 15:50  I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.      
I take this to mean that we will be changed into spiritual beings as our lord is     


* The goal of the ages is expressed in, 1 Corinthians 22- 28:-

'For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
But every man in his own order:
Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at His coming.

For He must reign, till He hath put all enemies under His feet.

it is manifest that He is excepted, which did put all things under Him.
And when all things shall be subdued unto Him,
then shall the Son also Himself be subject unto Him that put all things under Him,
that God may be all in all.'


Agreed     

'Wherein He hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Having made known unto us the mystery of His will,
according to His good pleasure which He hath purposed in Himself:
That in the dispensation of the fulness of times
He might gather together in one all things in Christ,

Hello Dave,

If, as you say, you take the word of God literally (making allowances for figures of speech, symbols, and types of course), then you will be in no doubt as to whom Adam is.  He is the first man created (Genesis 1:26-27 & Genesis 5:1-2).

'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.
So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him;
male and female created He them.'


'This is the book of the generations of Adam.
In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made He him;
Male and female created he them;
and blessed them, and called their name Adam,
in the day when they were created.'


* These passages states quite clearly that mankind (Adam) was made in the image of God, both male and female.

* As I said previously, Adam (Mankind) was made in the image of God, though that image was subsequently marred through sin. It is yet to be restored in resurrection, as Rom. 8:29 reveals: 'For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son.'

* As you say Christ is said to be the express image of God in Hebrews 1:2-3:-

'Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, Whom He hath appointed heir of all things,
by whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person,
and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins,
sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;'

 
* We are told without a shadow of doubt that this applies to the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God's only 'Begotten' Son.  Israel may have been spoken of collectively by God as, 'My Son', but it cannot be said to be 'in the image of God' for it comprises of individual sinners in need of salvation.  Only Christ was without sin, and therefore only He can be spoken of as being in the express image of God's person.

Praise God!

Thank you
In Christ Jesus

Hello @davetaff,

Hi Chris
Thank you for you post   



In relation to the types and shadows of the Old Testament: we are told in Luke 24:27 and Luke 24:44:-

'And beginning at Moses and all the prophets,
He expounded unto them in all the scriptures
the things concerning Himself.'


'And He said unto them,
These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you,
that all things must be fulfilled, which were written
in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms,
concerning Me.'

 
* Our Lord Himself confirms that the Old Testament Scriptures concern Himself, and that He and what He accomplished, is the fulfillment of them.

Agreed     

* So the Lord Jesus Christ is pre-figured by type and shadow in the Old Testament Scriptures. 

   yes agreed
* It is said in 1 Corinthians 10:11, concerning God's dealings with Israel:-

'Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples:
and they are written for our admonition,
upon whom the ends of the world are come.'
(1 Corinthians 10:11)

* So the history of Israel, with their sin and rebellion, and God's dealings with them, are examples for us to learn by.  They are types and shadows (Hebrews 10:1 & Colossians 2:16-17).  The ceremonial law was also a shadowing forth in type of New Testament realities.(Hebrews 9:24).

Looks pretty good to me

* I believe that the only way that we can be sure that something we read in the Old Testament is a type or shadow of something within the New Testament, is if the Holy Spirit within the New Testament designates it to be so. That Adam was in some respects a type of Christ Romans 5:14 makes clear:-

That's right the Adam mentioned here is Israel think about it Israel and Christ both went into Egypt the both returned and went into the wilderness to be tempted Israel 40 years Christ 40 Days Israel had 12 tribes 1 was rejected the two sons of Joseph were taken in instead Christ had 12 disciples one was rejected and 2 were taken in instead it stands to reason Israel is the first Adam and Christ is the Last Adam         

'Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses,
even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression,
Who is the figure of Him that was to come.'


I think the Adam mentioned here is the one created before the flood       

(Rom 5:14)

* Melchizedek (Genesis 14) is typical of the priesthood of the Lord Jesus.  We know because we are told so in Hebrews 7:3 and Hebrews 15-17.

Agreed     

* Moses the Prophet, the mouthpiece of God, is a picture of the greatest of all prophets, Christ Himself (Deuteronomy 18:15-19, Acts 3:22-23). 

Agreed     

* The sacrificial lambs of the Old Testament were all foreshadowing the Saviour (John 1:29; 1 Corinthians 5:7).

Agreed   
* The Manna in the wilderness finds its fulfilment in Christ (John 6:30-35). The brazen serpent also was a type of Christ (John 3:14-15).

Christ is the bread from heaven and he was lifted up for the sins of the world   

* The Tabernacle was a picture of the lord's humanity, (Heb. 10:20).  The smitten rock (Numbers 20:11), typified the Lord Jesus Christ as 1 Corinthians 10:4 asserts.  Joshua, the captain of Israel and leader into the promised land, prefigured Christ.  The name Jesus, being the Greek equivalent for Joshua (Hebrews 2:10; and Hebrews 4:8).

Can agree with this and as Joshua led the Israelites into the land flowing with milk and Honey Christ will lead us into the paradise of God   

* Last but not least, the context of any passages must determine the meaning of it.  One verse, although maybe having some personal significance for us, should always be considered in the light of the context in which it comes, and not taken out of context to fit what we perceive to be a likeness to Christ, or a type or shadow of Him and His work.

I Like to sick to a literal interpretation where ever possible

Hello Dave,

This has to be Adam, created by God as mentioned in Genesis 1:26-27, and Genesis 5:1-2, and as described in Genesis 2:4-25, for there was no other created.

Noah was a type of Adam, who came from Adams loins by descent, but there was only one Adam.


* There are many things that happened during the history of Israel which can be compared with the life of Christ, but that does not make Israel, Adam, or Israel, Christ.

Thank you

Hello again, @davetaff,
 
Adam was a type of Christ. He is described as, 'a figure of Him Who was to come' in Romans 5:12-21.  In Romans 5:12-21, 1 Corinthians 15:21-22 & 1 Corinthians 15:45-49, we see in what way Adam was a figure of Christ:- 

'Wherefore, as by one man (Adam) sin entered into the world, and death by sin;
and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:
(For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses,
even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression,
who is the figure of Him that was to come.'
 
;But not as the offence, so also is the free gift.
For if through the offence of one (Adam) many be dead,
much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace,
which is by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.'
 
'And not as it was by one that sinned (Adam), so is the gift:
for the judgment was by one to condemnation,
but the free gift is of many offences unto justification.
For if by one man's offence death reigned by one (Adam);
much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness
shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)
 
Therefore as by the offence of one (Adam) judgment came upon all men to condemnation;
even so by the righteousness of one (the Lord Jesus) the free gift came upon all men unto justification of life.
For as by one man's disobedience (Adam) many were made sinners,
so by the obedience of one (the Lord Jesus) shall many be made righteous.
 
Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound.
But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
That as sin hath reigned unto death, (through the disobedience of Adam)
even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.'

 ______________________

'And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul;
the last Adam
(the Lord Jesus) was made a quickening spirit.
Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual
(the Lord Jesus), but that which is natural (Adam);
and afterward that which is spiritual (the Lord Jesus).'

'The first man is of the earth, earthy (Adam): the second man is the Lord from heaven.
As is the earthy
(Adam), such are they also that are earthy:
and as is the heavenly
(the Lord Jesus), such are they also that are heavenly.
And as we have borne the image of the earthy
(Adam), we shall also bear the image of the heavenly (the Lord Jesus).'

* This is what is written concerning Adam as a type, but there is also another aspect, to do with dominion.  Perhaps I can come back to that. 

In Christ Jesus
