Jesus: The Image of God

In the church, there are some topics that are very important even though they don’t get mentioned that often in the Bible. The Image of God is one of them—it’s a vital truth in terms of understanding who we are as human beings but if you go looking for specific verses about it in the Bible, you won’t find a lot. However . . . sometimes a topic is important because of where it comes up.

Let's talk about what it means that Jesus is the absolutely perfect Image of God.
