What does it mean that God created humanity? Why is important that God created Adam out of the dust of the earth and Eve from Adam’s rib? Why was it important for Adam to have a partner and what does that say about the role of close relationships and community in human existence? And what is the deal with being created in the image of God?
In this episode of The Podechesis Podcast, Brett, Jim, and Allen discuss question 10 from John Wesley’s Revision of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, how did God create Man?
