John Hammett: Human Beings as Persons Created in the Image of God

Video Icon

In this concluding lecture, Dr. John Hammett (Southeastern Baptist Theological seminary) thanks and responds to all of the presenters, adding a distinctly Southern Baptist perspective to the topic.

This talk was delivered in February 2022 at Exploring Personhood: What Is a Human Being? Exploring Personhood began with the authority of the Scriptures and Christian theology. We then invited perspectives from the sciences (biology, genetics, psychology, cognitive science, and anthropology) and humanities (ethics, biblical studies, philosophy, and theology). Our aim was to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue on the Imago Dei, the unity and diversity of the human race, and embodiment — all for the glory of God and the good of the world.
