The answer to this is complicated. I should also say I'm a Christian but the holy writings of Jews, the Torah, is the same or similar to the Old Testament ofwhich I have read.
In Genesis 1:26 it says "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..."
Also in Exodus 33:23 Moses is talking to God on a mountain after leading the slaves from Egypt and asks to see God's face, his answer: "And I will take away mine hand, and thou shalt see my back parts: but my face shall not be seen."
So I guess one could deduce that God and humans have some similarities but nothing that I have read describes God directly as having a human form.
My own opinion is that religious texts are "dumbed down" so much so that we humans can understand and glean something from divine wisdom, at the sacrifice of losing some details in the translation. For example the image of God could mean anything from exact form all the way through to something so basic in that we both have free will over our destiny.
You will find all Egyptian Gods/Goddesses have an animal form and a human form. Take Horus for example, He could be shown as a human, a human with a falcons head, or as a falcon! (I'm not that sure to be honest though if Horus had a falcon's head or an eagle's head.)It is more common for certain gods/goddesses to be shown with there animals head or in human form.Any further questions on Greek,Norse, or Egyptian Mythology, please put it on my message board...
According to Greek myth, when Prometheus made man, he wanted to give them a special gift. But his brother, Epimetheus, had given all the gifts to the other animals that had been made. So, Prometheus, knowing man was special, made him walk upright, in the image of the gods, and gave him fire, such as only the gods themselves could harness. So, the Greeks made statues of their gods in their own image, since if mankind was made to look like the gods, they must have the same form. The reality of it is that we create gods in our own image, and the Greek sculptors use the only form they knew, the human form, to represent their gods.
