Questions about Genesis Chapter 1

1. Whos is the “us” with whom God consults in verse 26?

2.  Since according to Biblical theology, God is omnipotent and omniscient, why does God consult with others before taking this action?

3. What does it mean to be created in God’s image – especially if God is non-corporeal?

4. Why do you think God gave man dominion over all the living things? What rights and responsibilities might this dominion entail?

5. Why do you think verse 27 starts off saying God created him (singular masculine) and winds off saying “male and female God created them”?
