Journey of Transformation 有限者的覺悟

我如今所知道的有限,到那時就全知道,如同主知道我一樣 ~林前13。

人論:形像樣式 (1)

Posted by Joyce Chen 許陳 明正 on July 29, 2006

創世記 1:26 神說:「我們要照著我們的形像、按著我們的樣式造人,使他們管理海裡的魚、空中的鳥、地上的牲畜,和全地,並地上所爬的一切昆蟲。」,

我愈讀這節經文,愈認為實在有必要仔細思想及察考這節經文到底在說什麼,
上帝藉由這節經文要我們對人有什麼了解?

經文中上帝說:「我們…造人…」,為什麼是「我們」?

因為是三位一體的神──聖父、聖子、聖靈──造人。
因此,我們可以得知獨一真神造人類是按聖父、聖子、聖靈的形像樣式造人。

“We recognize in ourselves the image of God, that is, of the supreme Trinity, an image which though it be not equal to God or rather though it be very far removed from him, being neither coeternal nor, to say all in a word, consubstantial with him, is yet nearer to him in nature than any other of his works and is destined to be yet restored that it may bear a still closer resemblance.” (奧古斯丁, 上帝之城 11.26)
