"And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form, 38 nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent. 39 You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life." (John 5:39)

Jesus In Genesis:
 
I Was Recently In A Jesus Debate Group.
 
But This Group Was Mostly To Malign And Ridicule Jesus.
"3 He (Jesus) was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not." (Isaiah 53)
So I Thought The Better Approach Was To Show The Deficiencies In These Skeptics Own World View.
 
I Was Posting My 'You're A Hopeless Liberal' Messages There And Was Moderated Because Allegedly I Wasn't Talking About Jesus Enough So That They Could Berate Him Some More.
 
I Really Think It Was Because They Couldn't Respond To The 'Hopeless Liberal' Messages I Was Posting That Were Showing The Utter Absurdity Of Evolution.
 
I Did Post Some Links From 'Answers In Genesis' Site Regarding Jesus' View Of Genesis And Creation But None Of Them Wanted To Comment On That.
 
But It Got Me Thinking That Maybe More About Jesus Does Need To Be Said.
 
So Here Goes.
 
God The Word (Preincarnate Christ) Was With The Father In The Very Beginning.
"26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." (Genesis 1)
 
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men.
 
Christ Created All Things. (Colossians 1)
 
Notice The Word 'With'.
 
5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. 6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. (Divine Image Of?) 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him." (John 1)
Now The Plurality Of Persons Speaking Here Indicates That We Are In The Image Of God Who Says 'Our' And 'Us' Or In God And Some Angels. (Genesis 1)
 
I Don't See Any Scripture Teaching Our Creation In The Image Of Angels.
 
Now The True Light (God The Son) That Gives Light To Every Man (John 1) May Include Being In God's Image.
 
This Is What Jesus Says Concerning His Relation With The Father.
"5 And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began." (John 17:5)
So It Sure Looks To Me That A Plurality Of Persons specifically The Father And Son Had A Relationship That Went Back Eternally. (Also The Holy Spirit- Isaiah 48:12-16)
 
Now Speaking Of The Light, Many Evolutionists Or Theistic Evolutionists Want To Argue For The Non Literalness Of The Six Days Of Creation With One Argument Being:
 
'Well Why Wasn't Light Created Until The Fourth Day?
 
And For That Reason How Literal Could The Previous Creation Days Be, Seeing That 'Evening-Darkness And Morning-Light' Was The Measurement Being Used To Determine The Days.
 
The Fact Is That Light Was Present From The First Day (Genesis 1:3) But The Sun Not Until The Fourth Day. (Genesis 1:14 ff)
 
So What (Or Who) Was The Light Previous To The Creation Of The Luminaries?
"The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. 24 The nations will walk by its light, and the kings of the earth will bring their splendor into it. 25 On no day will its gates ever be shut, for there will be no night there." (Revelation 21 )
See It?, Christ The Lamb Is The Light In the End As He Was In The Beginning With God.
 
'Lighteth Every Man Coming Into The World', Including Adam. (John 1)
 
Its Interesting That When John One Says "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning.", The Word 'Logos'= Word Carries With It Some Deep Meanings.
 
Our Word Logic Comes From It.
 
Real Logic Cannot Happen Without 'The Logos'-Word As Its Foundation.
"Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path." (Ps. 119:105)
This Illuminating Word Is From Genesis To Revelation And The Living Word Is Christ Himself.
 
So When One Quotes Scripture/Word It Is Somehow Related To Christ.
"And the Father who sent me has himself testified concerning me. You have never heard his voice nor seen his form, 38 nor does his word dwell in you, for you do not believe the one he sent. 39 You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me to have life." (John 5:39)
So Whenever We Use Scripture/The Word We Are Either Directly Or Indirectly Speaking Of Christ.
