Genesis 1:26–27; Matthew 19:4; Mark 10:6

26 Then God said, oLet us make man1 in our image, pafter our likeness. And qlet 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.

27  So God created man in his own image,

in the image of God he created him;

rmale and female he created them.

He answered, tHave you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female,

But ffrom the beginning of creation, God made them gmale and female.
