Female Image of God

The Female Image of God in the Bible

Through all of creation, God teaches us about the existence of the female image of God. It was God’s will that life in all living organisms come from mothers. Even throughout the Bible, God continuously teaches us about the existence of God the Mother. The first chapter in the book of Genesis depicts God creating human beings in the image of God.

“Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.’”

Genesis 1:26–27 (NLT)

When creating human beings, God referred to Himself in the plural form. The use of the pronoun “us” shows there is more than one God at work. If God were only one, He should have said, “Let me make man in my image.” God made two images of human beings—a male image and a female image. These images come from the male image of God and the female image of God.

“Then God said, ‘Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.’ … So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”

Genesis 1:26–27 (NLT)

We call the male image of God, “God the Father.” What should we call the female image of God? The Bible testifies that She is God the Mother (Gal 4:26). 

“But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.”

Galatians 4:26
female Image of God

Males were created according to the male image of God, whom we know as God the Father. And females were created according to the female image of God—God the Mother. God the Father and God the Mother appear all throughout the Bible, not only at the beginning but also at the end (Rev 22:17).
