ESN Conversation: Being God’s Image with Carmen Joy Imes

June 20, 2023 at 3 pm ET

What does it mean to be human? This is a question at the root of so many of our academic discussions. This timeless question proves critical as we seek to understand our purpose, identity, and significance. Carmen Joy Imes, a professor of Old Testament at Biola University explores what it means to be created as the image of God for our purpose, calling, and identity in the world. This has implications for our work, our gender relations, our care for creation, for community, and our future destiny. She seeks to recover the theologically rich message of the creation narratives starting in the book of Genesis as they illuminate what it means to be human.
