Who is the foremost of God´s visible creatures?

Man is the foremost of God’s visible creatures, because God created his body in a special way, gave him a rational soul, and made him ruler over all the earth. He is foremost above all because God created him in His own image.

Gen. 2:7: The Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

Gen. 1:26-27: 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 cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created He him, male and female created He them.
