Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
I should not have thought it necessary to have noticed this word, being in the general acception of it so very plain and obvious, had it not been so peculiarly made use of in relation to the person of our Lord Jesus Christ, as "the Image of the invisible God." He and he only, is the image of the invisible God, "the first born of every creature;" and though not openly revealed, yet secretly, and in reality set up from everlasting. Hence, as Christ, thus the glory-man, is declared to "be the brightness of his Father's glory, and the express image of his person." (Hebrews 1:3) So this is the very person in whose likeness, Adam the first open man, was created and made; "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness." (Genesis 1:26)
