Jesus created ALL things.

"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1).

For thousands of years people believed that God the Father, God Jehovah, God the self-existing one, was the Creator. But John tells us Jesus was the Creator: "Through him [Jesus] all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made" (John 1:3).

God the Father was the architect, planner, and producer of creation. But Jesus was the agent and director, the executor of the process. This bears out in a couple of passages from other places in the New Testament. First, Colossians 1:15-17 tells us, "He [Jesus] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together."

From this we see that (1) Jesus created everything, visible and invisible; (2) everything was created "by him" and "for him" — in other words, the creation belongs to him; (3) he existed "before all things" — before anything else existed; and (4) he "holds all things together" — it is by his power that the universe does not simply explode.

Next, in Hebrews 1:2, we read: "But in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe." Again we see an unequivocal statement of Jesus's role as Creator.

Think about this for just a moment. When Jesus walked the earth and spoke with and healed countless people, doing miracle upon miracle, he was the one who actually had created that earth and those people. When the leading Jews insulted him and spit on him, they were mistreating the one who had fashioned them in the womb. And when people nailed him to the cross, they were in effect trying to kill the one who held their molecules and bodies together.

It's a remarkable thought. Who could possibly have understood when looking into Jesus's face and hearing his voice that they were seeing and hearing creative omnipotence?
