Jesus as the Image of God

Yes, this is from Michelangelo's "The Creation of Adam". I couldn't resist.

Good theologians would assert that this is a theologically true statement... that Jesus looks just like his father.

Most would say, yes, spiritually.

Some would also say, yes, materially.

I claim that good theology, when pushed to its logical end, asserts that Christ, representing all, assumes us all into this theological truth.
