Theology of the Image of God
Many Christians know that God created humanity in His image. Yet theologians ponder exactly what God's image really is. Is humanity an interplay of body, soul, mind, and spirit? This course introduces a theology of anthropology that asks deep questions about the relationship between body and soul, soul and spirit, and the human mind. Students are challenged to consider what it means to be a "self" and truly to "be yourself" as God conforms us to the image of Christ. Students are also given an experiential teaching regarding a theology of inner healing as it relates to theological anthropology.
Key Questions To Be Explored:
What is the image of God?
What are the theological implications of Jesus actually being the Image of God?
What is the difference between the human spirit and the Holy Spirit?
What makes theological anthropology so important?
How can theological understanding help people bear God's image more fully?
