Is there more than one God in the bible?


In this bible passage "And 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 fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." 1. Why does God speak in plural? What is meant by "us" and "our"? 2. What does it mean to be made in God's image and likeness? Does that mean perfection? 3. If god created man on the 5th day how is "man" different from Adam?

    I believe that most marriages involve more than 1 person, hence "we" refers to both husband & wife / or some other combination of 2 people these days. Definitely NOT singular.

    The passage is from genesis "In the beginning" at which point he had no son nor holy spirit. Also the holy spirit would be a subordinate not an equal and the words would clearly be addressed to one or more equals.
