Creation: What did Jesus say about Creation

Jesus did not speak directly about the creation of the world in the way that Genesis 1 describes the creation process. However, there are several instances in the New Testament where Jesus references the beginning of creation or affirms God’s role as the Creator. These references can give us insight into Jesus’ perspective on creation.

One relevant verse is Mark 10:6, where Jesus says, “But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.'” This statement by Jesus affirms the Genesis account of creation, indicating that He acknowledged the narrative of God creating humans as male and female as a foundational truth.

Another passage is Matthew 19:4-5, which parallels Mark 10:6, where Jesus again refers to the Genesis account of creation: “He answered, ‘Have you not read that he who created them from the beginning made them male and female, and said, ‘Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’?'”

Additionally, in John 1:1-3, although not a direct quote from Jesus, the text provides theological insight into Jesus’ relationship with creation: “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 were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.” This passage identifies Jesus (the Word) as active and present in creation, affirming His divinity and creative power.

Three Main Takeaways:

  1. Jesus Affirmed the Genesis Account of Creation: Jesus’ references to “the beginning of creation” and His affirmation of God creating humans male and female indicate that He upheld the Genesis creation narrative as true and authoritative.
  2. Jesus as Co-Creator: Through passages like John 1:1-3, the New Testament reveals Jesus was not only present at the creation of the world but actively involved as the divine Word through whom all things were made. This underscores His divinity and integral role in creation.
  3. Foundational Importance of Creation in Christian Doctrine: Jesus’ acknowledgment of the creation account highlights the importance of understanding God as the Creator. It serves as a foundational truth that influences Christian teachings on human identity, purpose, and marriage.
