We should also remember that the manifestations in the Old Testament, and the incarnation must throw some light upon this subject (see p. 20). b) Nor Are the Expressions "Image" and "Likeness" Exhausted When We Say That They Consisted in Man's Dominion Over Nature, and the Creation of God in General. Indeed the supremacy conferred upon man presupposed those spiritual endowments, and was justified by his fitness, through them, to exercise it. c) Positively, We Learn from Certain Scriptures in What This Image and Likeness Consisted.

Both the Bible and science agree in making man the crowning work of God,...
