Join us on "Israel- Why is the Middle East Important?" for a profound exploration in our latest episode, "The Image of God." First we discuss how God is the "Keeper" of Israel.  Then Neil and I delves into the theological and cultural significance of humanity being created in the image and likeness of God, a concept deeply rooted in Middle Eastern history and the Jewish  faith of which Christianity is part.   We examine how this foundational belief has shaped the region's religious, social, and political landscapes.
Our journey begins with ancient texts and traditions, exploring how the idea of being made in God's image has influenced Jewish, Christian, thought. We uncover the profound implications of this belief on notions of human dignity, equality, and purpose.
Being made in the image and likeness of God can be interpreted in various ways. It suggests that humans possess unique qualities reflecting divine attributes, such as the capacity for reason, creativity, moral judgment, love, patience, and the ability to form relationships. This idea also emphasizes the inherent worth and dignity of every individual, fostering a sense of equality and respect for human life.   Visit our nFacebiook page to comment-
