What are the Cherubim? Pt. 1: The Face of Man

Whenever we see Cherubim, we see them depicted as cute chubby little babies with wings. Often times we see them with a cute little bow and arrow ready to spread love, like Cupid. But is that what Cherubim look like? Aren’t the Cherubim cute, chubby little babies with wings? How does the Bible describe Cherubim? Does the Bible even describe Cherubim?

What Are The Cherubim? Pt. 1 Summary

The Four Faces of the Cherubim

And from the midst of it came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance: they had a human likeness, but each had four faces, and each of them had four wings.

Ezekiel 1:5-6

10 As for the likeness of their faces, each had a human face. The four had the face of a lion on the right side, the four had the face of an ox on the left side, and the four had the face of an eagle.

Ezekiel 1:10

The four faces of the Cherubim are the face of man, lion, ox, and eagle. The Cherubim’s face of man represents their connection to humanity. This is the same word used when describing the creation of man.

26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let 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.”

Genesis 1:26

This is why they are described as having the likeness of man. They are connected to man.
