||Bible Question: I always thought that God created everything, but someone told
me that Jesus did. If God created the world, did Jesus ever create
Bible Answer: You are correct, God did create everything. Note the following
||In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. (NASB)
It is I who made the earth, and created man upon it. I stretched
out the heavens with My hands, And I ordained all their host.
(NASB) Isa 45:12
Both of these passages tell us that God created everything. There
are many other passages we could read, but these give us the facts.
The Isaiah passage is very meaningful because God declares that
He created everything - humans, heaven, earth, stars, planets,
Jesus Created Everything Too. But scripture also tells us that Jesus created everything. Listen
to this passage,
||For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on
earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or
rulers or authorities--all things have been created by Him and
for Him. (NASB) Colossians 1:16
The pronoun "Him" refers to Jesus. This can be determined by reading
verse 13. That is, Jesus made everything too. He made the heavens
(heaven, stars, planets, and moons), earth and even the things
we do not see such as the spirits. Not only did Jesus create everything
but He continues to hold everything together too.
||. . . Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through
Him. (NASB) 1 Corinthians 8:6
All things came into being by Him, and apart from Him nothing
came into being that has come into being. (NASB) John 1:3
Who is Jesus? Who has this much power? Who has this kind of intelligence
and wisdom! Who ever He is, He is the creator of the universe!
||But of the Son He says, "THY THRONE, O GOD, IS FOREVER AND EVER
. . . And, "THOU, LORD, IN THE BEGINNING DIDST LAY THE FOUNDATION
OF THE EARTH, AND THE HEAVENS ARE THE WORKS OF THY HANDS . . .
(NASB) Hebrews 1:1-2, 8-10
This is a remarkable statement. It says that "the Son," who is
Jesus Christ, is God and that He made the heavens and the earth.
This can mean only one thing. God is Jesus and Jesus is God who
Conclusion: You may want to read two important studies. The first one is entitled, "Who Is God?" and the second one is called "Jesus Our Savior." Jesus is God our Savior the one who created everything - the things we see and the world
we do not see.
