Though rarely mentioned in the Hebrew Bible, the imago Dei has long been a key—if highly debated—theological concept for both the western and eastern church. An examination of the Hebrew text, especially Gen 1:26 and Ps 8:1,5, along with the historical, literary, and cultural contexts offers insight into the meaning of this important concept, which opens the Torah and sets the tone for the canon.
