HOME GROUP DISCUSSION:
-When we speak about human dignity and value as Christians, we do so against the back drop of God's design. How do you think that non-Christians come to a conviction about human worth; what is the basis?
-How does the truth of humanity as a part of creation go hand in hand with the the honor of being created in God's image?
-How were images used in ancient cultures by kings, and what impact does this have on our understanding of why God creates humanity in His own image?
-How does an understanding of the nature of the image of God lead us to honor all human life?
-What do we learn about gender in this account of creation? How does this connect to the image of God?
-How would you describe the dominion given to man, and does this have any application to our own lives?
