Genesis

To some, this is where the fairy tale begins.

Then God said: “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness, and let them have in subjection the fish of the sea and the flying creatures of the heavens and the domestic animals and all the earth and every creeping animal that is moving on the earth.”

Genesis 1: 26

There are few who actually read Genesis without wondering if it isn’t a fiction. Something made up from whole cloth by the ancients to tell their children around some fire in some hut somewhere. “Let us make man in our image.” Is God using a plural pronoun for Himself here? Using “our” for Himself as two individuals? This is but one word right at the start of the Bible, “our,” that begins to tell us that there is much more than a fairy tale here.

Assuming that God is not speaking of Himself (which He isn’t) but two persons, who is He speaking to. Have you any idea? It doesn’t tell us specifically in Genesis but it does in the Bible as a whole. It is His first born Son, Jesus. Jesus as He was in the beginning. As a spirit person.

Together they created the rest of the Earth, the angels, and mankind itself. And, this is merely the beginning of what the Bible tells us and that we should struggle to understand for our betterment. The Bible is for the mind of mankind and this is what puts off those who consider it bunk.

Peace.
