What to know before you visit
As we enter the Easter weekend, consider spending this special time of the year with us at the Creation Museum. And while you are visiting, you won’t want to miss seeing a presentation of The Last Adam.
When you walk through the Creation Museum, you’ll make your way through the 7 C’s of God’s eternal plan. The ﬁrst four C’s lay the foundation in the book of Genesis. Creation, Corruption (the Fall of man), Catastrophe (the Flood of Noah), and Confusion (the Tower of Babel).
The culmination of God’s plan is found in the ﬁnal 3 C’s of Christ, Cross, and Consummation. These are communicated through The Last Adam video presentation in our special effects theater. Next month, a new exhibit will open that focuses on the final 3 C’s and presents the gospel to our guests. Here is a closer look at our popular video presentation.
The video begins at a campfire with a Christian paleontologist explaining the truth of God’s Word to a colleague as “real and powerful.” He links the true historical events of Genesis chapters 1–11 with the promises of God made to Abraham and the law given through Moses. The paleontologist describes the Jewish sacriﬁcial system and how spotless lambs were oﬀered as an atoning sacriﬁce for the sins of the people.
Then the character of Mary, the mother of Jesus, describes the sacriﬁce and the seriousness of sin. She speaks of the angel’s announcement that she would bear the Messiah, and that His name would be Jesus. Mary learns that her Son would also be called by another name, “the Lamb.”
Jesus’ life was everything that the prophets foretold. He was born of the virgin in Bethlehem, grew in wisdom and stature, and began His public ministry. He healed the sick, cast out demons, and preached the good news of the kingdom of God to the poor.
Jesus was betrayed by one of His own disciples and sentenced to die on a Roman cross. At His death, He cried out, “It is ﬁnished!” (John 19:30). The sacriﬁce had been made, and the debt had been paid in full. One of the centurions, who witnessed Christ’s death, said, “Truly this Man was the Son of God!” (Mark 15:39).
But Jesus did not stay in the grave. He rose on the third day, conquering sin and death. He will come again, at the Consummation of all things, and establish a new heavens and new earth, where there will no longer be sin, death, or suﬀering.
As we approach Easter and contemplate the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, may we put our complete faith and trust in Him alone for our salvation. “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved” (Romans 10:9).
If you enjoy The Last Adam during your visit to the Creation Museum, you can add it to your home collection. You can purchase a copy of the video in the Dragon Hall Bookstore or from the online store of our parent ministry, Answers in Genesis.
