Scriptures In The Bible About Creation


People have many ideas about how the universe came into being. And they make guesses about where mankind, animals and plants came from. But the Bible gives us the truth about these origins. On this page is a list of more than 50 verses from the Bible that show that God created all things. He did this through Jesus Christ, the Son of God, about 6000 years ago. Bear in mind that Jesus is the one known, in the Old Testament of the Bible, as the Lord. That was before he came into the world, being born as the person Jesus about 2000 years ago.

God’s creation is described in the first chapter of the first book of the Bible. In chapter 1 of the Book of Genesis, Moses writes about what happened in just six days.
