An up-close look at the stunning miracle of human life.
Every human life begins at a precise moment known only to God. Unbeknownst even to the parents, life is created in the darkness of the womb, seen by God alone. And yet, thanks to modern technology, we can now have insight into how life begins and develops before birth.
The video above is a reminder of how individual human life develops from the moment of fertilization until the day of birth.
“When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have ordained, what is man that your are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him little lower than God, and crowned him with glory and honor.” (Psalm 8:3-5)
