is the word used for “Spirit” (rûaḥ), and hence here the writer attributes the creation of the world to the Spirit. In light of the NT revelation on the divinity of the Spirit, it is warranted to see the Spirit as creator. The Son’s role as creator is even clearer from a canonical perspective. John’s Gospel commences, “In the beginning” ( John 1:1 ), an unmistakable allusion to Gen. 1:1 . Another allusion to Genesis immediately surfaces, for John 1:3 speaks of the role of the “Word” in the beginning, claiming that “all things were made” by the one who is the “Word.” Hence, the “Word” that spoke creation into existence ( Gen. 1:3 , 6 , 9 , 11 , 14 , 20 , 24 , 26 ) is identified as the Son of God—Jesus the Christ ( John 1:14 ). Hence, from a canonical perspective, the “let us” in Gen. 1:26 should be understood as a reference to the Trinity. Share Is “Let Us” in Genesis 1:26 a Reference to the Trinity?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
