Bible Question:

Did Jesus Create Everything, Including The World?

Bible Answer:

The scriptures state that Jesus was involved in the creation of the world and the entire universe. This was possible because Jesus is God. The overwhelming message of the Scriptures teaches that Jesus is God. The reader is encouraged to listen or read the study series, “The Bible Teaches Jesus Is God,” and discover this wonderful and vital truth. There are a number of passages that teach Jesus was not just involved in the creation, He is actually referred to as the One creating the universe and everything that is in it and in heaven.

Jesus Created Everything, Including The World?

All Things Came Into Being Through Him

John 1:1-3 is the first important passage that teaches “all things” were created by Christ.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. John 1:1-3 (NASB)

In the first verse we are told that the Word was God. For an explanation of the meaning of John 1:1, please read, “Before God created the universe, where was Christ?”  The study teaches that the Word is Christ (John 1:14) who is our God. He created everything. He created all that is in heaven and in the universe.

We Exist Through Him

The next important passage is 1 Corinthians 8:6.

. . . yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom are all things and we exist for Him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we exist through Him. 1 Corinthians 8:6 (NASB)

This verse is important since it reveals that Christ did the exact same things that the Father did. God the Father created all things and we live because of the Father. The apostle Paul also states that Christ will maintain all things. This reveals Christ is also God and He created!

By Him Everything Visible and Invisible Were Created

Colossians 1:15-17 helps us understand that when He and the Father created, they created everything in heaven and earth.

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 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 through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. Colossians 1:15-17 (NASB)

What did He create? Everything! Everything includes the visible and invisible. The descriptions of dominions or rulers or authorities includes the entire angelic realm. Notice the word “all” is repeated. Now the word all includes everything imaginable. Notice that Christ was before the beginning, that is, before everything, and He continues holding everything together.

But notice that we are told that everything was created by Christ. That means that Christ was not created. He is not a created being; He is God!

The Father Made All Things Through Christ

The last verse we will examine is Hebrews 1:2.

. . . in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. Hebrews 1:2 (NASB)

Notice that Jesus Christ is referred to in this verse. This verse reveals how the Father and Christ created the heavens and the earth together. The Trinity acted together.

Conclusion:

Did Jesus create everything, including the world? The answer is yes! He created more than just the world. He created everything. He created everything in heaven and on earth. He made the angels, the stars, the universe and all that is on the earth. Christ is our God, along with the Father and the Spirit, who also created everything. They created everything together.
