Seeing Christ in Creation

School of Science, Technology, and Health

About this Course

“Seeing Christ in Creation” provides an in-depth scientific and biblical look at the implications of the verse: “For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible…all things were created through him and for him” (Colossians 1:16).  If Jesus is the one for whom and by whom all things exist, we should expect that the created universe carries the imprint of Christ as Creator.

In the following lectures, we will investigate:

  • How creation acknowledges the Lordship of Jesus.
  • How 11 of Jesus’ attributes are woven into the fabric of creation.
  • How creation serves as a setting for God’s redemptive story.
  • How we can appropriately respond to the Lordship of Jesus over creation

By gaining a deeper understanding of nature as the handiwork and the servant of Jesus Christ, we can grow in our trust in his sovereignty and our worship of his majesty as revealed in the nature and the Word.

This course, which features the teachings of Dr. Eric Hedin, Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Biola University, will provide you with a new and deeper appreciation of the image of Christ in creation.  The six lessons and guided reflections will help lead you to richer, more informed worship of Christ in light of his lordship over the natural world.

Note: There is also a Small Group Curriculum for this course including videos and a downloadable participant's guide for use in an in-person small group.
