Overview

Nature reflects qualities of Christ as its creator.  Christ as the creator implies his ultimate ownership of the created order. The created universe is dependent on Christ. Even the laws of nature are dependent upon a Law-giver.  Jesus demonstrated his authority over nature, showing that nature consists of more than the laws of physics. Christ’s spiritual authority is embedded within nature, which glorifies Jesus by being true to the intent and purposes for which he created it.

Note: This is the small group curriculum version of the course. This course contains videos and a downloadable participant's guide for use in an in-person small group. There is also a version of this course designed for individual use.
