What exactly does Genesis 1:27 mean? [| Read the text of the verse |] The pattern for Genesis chapter 1 is God stating His desire and then producing. God specified what shall be formed and why in the preceding verse. In this passage, he is elevated to the status of the first of all human beings. The poetry is composed in a three-line poetic form. The first line contains a question, the second line answers the question, and the third line repeats the answer back with additional information.
The Bible's first book, Genesis, begins with the phrase "In the beginning." Many Christians understand this to be a reference to the creation of the world by God at some point in time. However, the word "beginning" has other meanings as well. It can also refer to an origin or root. Thus, it is possible that God is saying that He is the source of everything -- including creation.
Some have argued that since mankind did not exist until after the creation of the world, then God cannot be its creator. However, this argument fails to take into account that humanity is part of God's creative process. Jesus said, "For no one knows the day or the hour [of death]..." (Mt 24:36). If no one knew the day or the hour, then how could anyone know when creation came from Him?
It may seem odd that while God created mankind in His image, we would want to deny Him authority.
