People: Image and Sin

God created both man and woman in his own image. This has great implications for us today, even though we all are corrupted by sin.

Sheep in Israel; sacrifices of sheep began because of humanity's fall into sin.

Genesis 1.26-28 NET: Then God said, "Let us make humankind in our image, after our likeness, so they may rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move on the earth." God created humankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them, male and female he created them. God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply! Fill the earth and subdue it! Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every creature that moves on the ground."
