God Through Mathematics and Music

Mia Chung—one of America’s highest ranking pianists, distinguished educators, and music advocates—is a professor of interpretive analysis at the Curtis Institute of Music. Professor Chung shared her thought about mathematics, music and Creator.

“For centuries, scholars and mathematicians viewed the math of the universe, whether found in music or the petals of a flower, as a manifestation of God’s creative genius. The Bible says that man was ‘created in the image of God.’ Nowhere is this image more evident than in the human capacity to compose, invent and create.

But if we are created in the image of the Creator of the universe, is it possible that the Creator of the universe is reaching out to us through math and music and our own creative potential? The math in music speaks to the heart of a creative God who wants to communicate to us. He does so not only through the natural laws, but also through our emotions and spirit. He aims to speak directly to us.” [1]

All these appearances of the special, beautiful, and mathematical structures in nature boil down to the creative design of a Creator who, in human terms, is also a mathematician, a scientist, and an artist. He wants to communicate to all human beings about His glory through His creation and wisdom as recorded in Psalm 19:

The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.
