Greatest Possible Magnitude

Dr Charles Malik of LebanonThe presence of Jesus at the Creation and his partnership with the creation Holy Spirit, are events of the greatest possible magnitude in human history. History is divided by Jesus Christ into "Anno Domini" (AD) meaning "in the year of the Lord" and BC meaning "before Christ." These terms were used to indicate or label years in the Julian and Gregorian calendars from 525 AD counting the years from the date of the birth of Jesus. In the words of Charles Malik of Lebanon, (1906-1987) who was an academic, diplomat and philosopher, "Jesus Christ is the hinge of history, the origin of Christianity." The Apostle John in 1 John 1.1 explained of the coming of Jesus, "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched - this we proclaim concerning the Word of life." Note that John described Jesus as "from the beginning" and of course this links up to Genesis 1.1 "In the beginning, God."

The Boy Jesus

Atlas holding up the worldBruce Larson (1925-2008) who ministered at the Crystal Cathedral in California, in his book "Believe and Belong" described two statues on Fifth Avenue in New York. He viewed them as an illustration of the Holy Spirit's work with Jesus in the Creation. At the entrance to the RCA Building which is now called the GE Building, stands a muscular Atlas straining to hold up the world on his shoulders. On the other side of Fifth Avenue in St Patrick's Cathedral is a statue of the little boy Jesus, at perhaps 8 or 9 years old, who with no effort is holding the world in one hand. The second person of the Trinity, Jesus, is more than our Savior, he holds up the earth in his hand and by his word.
