Wording: Adam begot Seth

Adam – son of God talked about how God gave Adam the same recognition as his son as Seth was Adams and The image of . . . discussed how God made Adam in his image in the same way that we want our kids to resemble us.

I find it interesting that when the bible mentions Adam's son's birth it says that Seth was in Adams likeness and after his image. As if God wanted it to be abundantly clear that the relationships are the same. Obviously He is God and we are not, but the idea that God sees us as we see our children is a powerful picture of the love He has for us, the joy He takes in us, and the forgiveness He desires to pour out on us.

“And Adam lived one hundred and thirty years, and begot a son in his own likeness, after his image, and named him Seth.”
Genesis 5:3
