Are today’s men created in the image of Adam since Adam was created in the image of God?


Genesis 2:1 - 25

ESV - 1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. 2 And on the seventh day God finished his work that he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work that he had done.

Adam and Eve were created on the 6th day of creation, created out of dust of the earth and the breath of God.

John 1:3: All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

“All things” refers to every different thing created into being where nothing like it existed before. God created processes too. The process of reproduction is built in to all living things. Offspring that are born are part of the process of reproduction…not of being created.

I would express it by saying that humans have a biological capability or predisposition to pass their physical appearance on to their offspring (as I would say is indicated, for example, by Genesis 5:3 with respect to Adam's son Seth), but that does not encompass Adam's original creation in the image of God, which was corrupted and lost when Adam sinned.
