Is Genesis 3:22 related to Genesis 1:26?
Genesis 3:22 (ESV) Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live forever—”
Genesis 1:26 (ESV) 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.”
Recently, I have been reading Genesis and I'm trying to compare Genesis 1 and Genesis 2. I believe that Genesis 2 is a detailed part of Genesis 1 (especially of verse 27). However, when I went on reading chapter 3, I was marveled at the information given in verse 22. Does it show us that the image and likeness of God in man is contingent to pre-fall events? Is Genesis 3:22 even related to Genesis 1:26?
