Creation and Commission: Genesis 1 to 3 – Translation and Commentary

Similarly, when He created man as His Own triune image (Genesis 1:26), He first made one original man with a triuni-chot-omous or trinifoldly-interlocking soul and body and spirit (Genesis 2:7 & First Thessalonians 5:23), and as His Own trinifold image especially as regards righteousness and holiness and truthfulness (Genesis l:26g).   And then, from that first man, He made one human race unfolding from male via female through child (Genesis 1:26-28 & 2:23-24 & 4:1 & 5:1-5) – thereby reflecting the eternal filiation (or Sonship) of the Son from the Father and the eternal procession (or Spirithood) of the Spirit from the Father and via the Son within the very Being of God- Triune Himself.   Thus:  John 1:1,14,18 & 14:26 & l5:26 & 16:13-15; First Corinthians 12:3-12; Galatians 4:1-7; and Ephesians 5:22 to 6:4.    See too especially Genesis 1:26de,27pq.
