The Importance of Apollo 8    



  By: Dr. Jake Jacobs
   Published : December 20, 2017


The 1960s was a decade of highs and lows, with memories abundant for a lifetime. One poignant event stuck in the heart and mind is Christmas Eve 1968 when Apollo 8 sent a message to us back on Earth. Apollo 8 was launched on December 21, 1968 on its way to the moon. Apollo 8 accomplished many amazing feats, as it was the first time humans had ever gone beyond low Earth orbit. It was also the closest-to-date of humans arriving near the moon.

The most awe-inspiring moment occurred when the Apollo 8 crew, as they were orbiting the moon, did a live broadcast to the then largest TV audience in history, showing us the far side of the moon while reading from the book of Genesis chapter 1:1-10. On that magical Christmas Eve American astronauts were wonderfully articulating the "American Cosmology of Creation." They embraced our Republic under God, understanding that the very source of our life, our liberty, our humanity and our universe is the God of the Scriptures, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
