Parallel to this idea, the heavenly expanse (raki’a) is “telling” of the work of God’s hands – the Hebrew word maggid means to explain or declare something in a conspicuous or obvious way, such as plainly telling the solution of a riddle. In Jewish tradition, the part of the Passover seder where the story of the Exodus from Egypt is clearly explained to the children at the table is called the Maggid.
Just as the order, precision, and enormous complexity of the physical universe reveals the glory and excellencies of the Creator, so the vast heavenly expanse conspicuously displays the work of God’s hands. And though mankind may suppress this constant narrative through willful ignorance, they are forever without excuse, “for what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For the invisible attributes of God, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, are clearly perceived in the things that have been made” (Romans 1:18-20).
