When you look at the Throne of God

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness… Genesis 1:26a

Here we have the plurality of the Godhead declaring there is one image of the Godhead, and as He made man in His image this means that man is made like God, as distinct from all other creatures including angels. And it had to be this way in order for the incarnation to happen, for God could only become a Man if man was made in the image of God. When you see the risen Lord Jesus you will see a Man, and yet a Man who is God, with the full glory of God, and when you see the Father you won’t see a man, but you won’t see someone very different from man, for Jesus, in His humanity, is the express image of the Father.
