Jesus in Creation


“If you explore the seven days of Creation in light of the New Testament, you will discover that everything in the visible creation is an image of Jesus.  For example:

Christ is light.  (John 8:12)
Christ is water.  (John 4:10; 7:38)
Christ is the life that emerged on the third day after the waters below the firmament were separated from the waters above.  (Death means separation.  Genesis 1:9-13; 1 Corinthians 15:4)
Christ is the true vine.  (John 15:1; 6:57)
Christ is wheat and the bread of life.  (John 12:24; 6:35)
Christ is the sun, the moon, and the morning star.  (Malachi 4:2)
Christ is the true Lamb.  (Colossians 2:16-17)
Christ is the model man.  (2 Peter 1:19; Revelation 22:16)
Christ is the real Sabbath.  (John 1:29.  See also Revelation 5.)”

Quoted from the new book Jesus Manifesto.
