Jesus ruled by surfing.” I’m pretty sure that’s what the video narration said in this insightful little video about what it means to be made in the image of God.
What does it mean to be made in the image of the invisible God? If God is spirit and has no image, how can we be made in his image?
As we prepare to start the Torah cycle this year, I’ve gathered a few videos from The Bible Project to get us started in Genesis. First up, a nice video about being made in the image of God.
The Torah says, “God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them” (Genesis 1:27). In these words, the Torah gives us a job description. It’s the meaning of life for humanity, but what does it really mean? Take six minutes to watch this short video about being made in God’s image.
Pay special attention to the video at 3:30-3:40 where our teacher explains, “He showed us what it looks like to truly rule as a human. Jesus ruled by surfing.” I’m pretty sure that’s not what he meant to say, but you be the judge, take a listen to it yourself.
If you can get past that point in the video, you’ll discover a wonderful teaching about how the resurrection of Yeshua signals a new creation for humanity.
