Judeo-Christian view of man

Do Now: Who is Man? 9/17/2014 What are some things about man that are unique from animals? Discuss these in 3 to 5 sentences.

Judeo-Christian View of Man (Copy this heading.)

How is man unique from animals? •Made in the image of God. •Capable of abstract thinking/reasoning •Makes moral decisions •Advanced communication •A free will to make decisions. (Copy this as notes) Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness... And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day.

How was man created? •God created & designed man through a purposeful, willful act. •God gave man life. •Man is not an accident. (Copy in your notes.) “Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7

Nature of Man Trichotomism: Body, Soul and Spirit (Copy this heading and the references below.) “I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:23). “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow (body), and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart”(Hebrews 4:12).

Daniel A. Helminiak The Human Core of Spirituality:Mind as Psyche and Spirit

Spirit (ruach; x;Wr) refers to: •Mind or intellect (Gen. 41:8; Ezek 20:32), •Openness and responsiveness to God (Ps. 51:10; Isa. 26:9) •Spiritual understanding (Job 20:3; 32:8; cf. 1 Cor 2:12-16) •Will (Dan. 5:20 The soul/heart is the governing center of the: •Will (Gen. 23:8; Matt 22:37; Eph 6:6), •Intellect (1 Sam. 2:35), •Emotions (Deut. 28:65; 1 Sam. 1:10; Job 7:11; Psa. 6:3; Matt 26:38;Mk 14:34; Jn 12:27) “The body refers to our physical beings, our biological structures and functions, the fact that we are organisms, living bodies. The body has physical needs, drives, urges, and sensitivities that color our mental and spiritual life. When we are sick or weary, we cannot think straight. So, the body influences our spirits and souls, just as our spirits and souls affect the body. Think about listening to music. It enter our body through our senses and it can elevate our moods (soul) and enhance our creativity and awareness (spirit.)” Jerry Truex Our Nature: A Tri-Aspect Holism of Body, Soul and Spirit.

Purpose of Man? (Copy this heading and the references.) 5 “..he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. Ephesians 1:5-6 “For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this. How can I let myself be defamed? I will not yield my glory to another.” Isaiah 48:11 Ezekiel 20:9 “9 But for the sake of my name, I brought them out of Egypt. I did it to keep my name from being profaned in the eyes of the nations among whom they lived and in whose sight I had revealed myself to the Israelites.”

Isaiah 43:6-8 6 I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth— 7 everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.”

What is God’s glory? “The glory of God is the infinite beauty and greatness of his manifold perfections.” John Piper (Copy this definition.) “The glory of God is the manifestation of his holiness. God’s holiness is the incomparable perfection and greatness of his divine nature; his glory is the display of that holiness.” John Piper What does manifest mean? If man is made in the image of God for the purpose of reflecting or showing the “glory of God”, how can man accomplish this? (Write the question and answer.)
