A Free 5-Day Study of Biblical Anthropology
with Sarah Koontz
Released on April 25, 2022
Sarah Koontz & the Living by Design team invite you to join us for this quick, yet powerful study of biblical anthropology. The Bible teaches us that God created humankind to be His image-bearers (Imago Dei is the Latin translation of “Image of God” as found in Genesis 1:26). The human spirit is uniquely crafted to connect with God and to reflect His character upon the earth.
The Bible reveals the ways God is actively redeeming His creation and re-establishing His divine rule in the hearts of humankind. In this brief study of the biblical view of human nature, we will seek to answer the following questions:
- Who is God?
- Why did God create humankind?
- What went wrong with God’s creation?
- How bad is the problem of sin, really?
- What did God do in order to redeem humankind?
The purpose of our study is to help you better understand who God is and who He has made you to be. Each day we will dig deep into a critical passage of Scripture in our effort to establish a biblical view of humanity. We will also consider complementary passages and thought-provoking application questions.
Topics Covered in our Free Imago Dei Study
The plot of the biblical story is communicated in Genesis 1:26a, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.” Because of the Bible, we know that God created the world on purpose for a purpose. We also know that humankind rebelled against God and the fallen creation no longer reflects God’s glory as intended. In the Imago Dei study, we will explore the ways God is actively redeeming His creation and re-establishing His divine rule in the hearts of humankind.
