So, when Paul writes to the Colossians he says: "The Son is the image of the invisible God..." (Colossians 1:15) he is not speaking about the identical digital photo, but rather about the Portrait of the Father. However, even the word 'portrait' falls short of adequately describing Jesus and his resemblance to the Father because it is in Character, Nature and Person, that Jesus 'looks like' our heavenly Father. This may be a little tricky to understand, but I think we get Paul's point. When we have seen Jesus, we have seen the Father.
What do you think?
Genesis 9:6 - Because God made humans in his image reflecting God’s very nature.
