    The book of Genesis says that man is made in God's image, not in the image of angels. Man: The Image of God

    Yes, of course. This was my belief also. I just noticed that you said when God said let us make man in OUR image, he was talking about angels and other in the heavenly court. So it would seem like if the "our" image included angels and others, then man may be in their images also. Obviously just a foolish thought in my mind but I still am not sure exactly what is ment by "our image" if their is only one God and we are in his image. This probably sounds like the babbling of a mad man but that is how my mind works sometimes. Shalom to you my friend.

    It means we are not the only creatures made in the image of God.

    Daniel 3:25. Daniel 7:13–14. Those Scriptures in the Tanakh reference Jesus.

    Neither of them reference Jesus, and I have already explained both of them, but apparently you did not read my posts. So, one more time, and I won't say it a third...

    Daniel 3:25 references an angel.

    Daniel7:13-14 references the nation of Israel. the context is Daniel see this animal and its this nation and that animal and its that nation, etc. and then finally, comes one as unto a son of man. the context is that it is another nation. What nation? Israel.

    Jesus was the Angel of the Lord in the Old Testament. He appeared to Abraham, to Moses, to Joshua. He also appeared to Isaiah.

    No sir. The angel of the LORD is an angel. Not the LORD. Not a man. Not the messiah. an angel. That's why its called "the Angel of teh LORD."
