Earlier versions of the bible speak of a celestial race that created humans in image of their likeness. Who were they? Where were they from? Why did they create us? Where did they go? Why was our species banned from their garden?

So you are saying that the god named God has three different personalities? I was under the understanding that Elohim is plural and refers to a race preceding Man, known as the Els.
The word "Elohim" IS plural, referring to the three distinct Persons of God. However God is not three separate gods, but one God. Andrew, like I said, I don't believe we can fully understand this concept. It must be accepted by faith.
I agree with Caleb regarding the word Elohim and the one God. But you asked about the plural - who were the "elohim" and not from the current bible. "Who is the One God" that is one question. If you ask "who were the Angels" different question.
CalebSparks Elohim is a dual plural, such as eyes. The suffix yim makes it a Duel Plural. There are certain things that are always written in dual plural. i.e. God, sky, and face. It' does not mean 3 in 1
