Cite and reference the textbook.Your answer in 100-150 words:Genesis 1-2 is all about Gods creation. God made man in the image of himself. In the sameway that he created us; being able to understand complex design and have characteristics like him, Adam and Eve were created with the intention of being good and honest (Diffey, 2020). “Then God said, “Let us make man, in our image, after our likeness.And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” (ESV Gen 1:27).

And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth” (Gen 1:26).
