Divine Council & “Image” of God: Two Essays by Alan Hooker

I’m happy to publish here two neat essays by Alan Hooker. Alan is a non-LDS student of Theology at Exeter University in the UK. In the first essay Alan provides a nice summary and general discussion of the Divine Council as it is found in the Hebrew Bible. The second essay is a discussion about the meaning of “tselem”, or “image”, as used in the Hebrew Bible. Alan concludes that “tselem” generally refers to a physical object, including the important passage in Gen 1:26-27.

    Coming back 2 years later, reading my own essays from undergraduate level is very cringe-worthy!
