Abstract

Hierdie artikel bespreek die belang van die konsep van die "imago Dei" vir teologiese antropologie. Die sentrale teoretiese argument van die artikel is dat Genesis 1 doelbewus 'n "oop" betekenis aan die "imago Dei" gee, sodat dit verder deur teologiese besinning ingevul kan word. Die "imago Dei" kan daarom nie alleenlik vanuit 'n protologiese perspektief verstaan word nie. Die Christologiese en eskatologiese inhoud wat die Nuwe Testament aan hierdie konsep gee, is bepalend vir die verstaan van die begrip en is belangrik vir die uiteindelike uitbou van 'n teologiese antropologie.


This article discusses the significance of the concept of the "imago Dei" for theological anthropology. Genesis 1 deliberately gives the concept an "open" meaning to make further theological reflection on the nature thereof possible. A purely protological understanding of the concept is therefore insufficient. The New Testament provides the "imago Dei" with a Christological and eschatological understanding that is essential for a correct understanding of the concept as well as for the development of a theological anthropology.
