Why Must Jesus Christ Be the Creator of the Universe?

The New Testament is the only religious work to describe:

    l a God who is transcendent to both time (2 Timothy 1:9, Titus 1:2, Jude 1:25) and space (John 18:36)
    l the creation of the universe from extra dimensions (Hebrews 11:3)

Not only is Jesus the only one who could have fulfilled the Messianic prophecies of the Old Testament, He is the only one who is described as having the attributes necessary to qualify as Creator of the Universe. The New Testament (which describes the fulfillment of the Messianic prophecies by Jesus of Nazareth) describes Jesus as Creator,1 and describes Him as transcendent to both time2 and space,3 characteristics that a Creator God must have in order to have created our universe. In addition, the New Testament describes His creation of the universe from invisible extra dimensions.4 For more information, see The Extradimensional Nature of God.
