Was Jesus the Creator?
Most movies about Jesus, such as The Passion of the Christ, depict Jesus as powerless while being whipped, beaten, spit upon and nailed to a cross. Jesus never raised a fist, fought back, or retaliated in any way against his enemies. Some depict Jesus as weak because he refused to defend himself.
But the New Testament tells us something much different. It reveals that Jesus Christ is the most powerful, intelligent being in the universe who could have obliterated his enemies with a mere word from his lips. Have you ever thought of Jesus as the one of whom Genesis says, “created the heavens and the earth”?
As we gaze at the stars in a night sky or observe a raging ocean storm, the power and genius of creation becomes apparent. However, few think of Jesus Christ as the one who flung the stars in space and created the DNA of life.
