I believe the last word was certainty, although I have not been able
to find it in my notes.

One other quote from the talk which was interesting was a quote from
the Midrash (commentary on the torah) was a quote that said that God
built miracles into the natural law so that he wouldn't violate
natural law.

Because early Christians and Jewish people of the time probably shared
a common view of creation, this would be a piece of evidence lending
weight to Howard Van Till's idea of the functional integrity of
creation, which he argues to be contained in scripture and to be the
way early Christians viewed creation.

I am trying to chase the exact quote down now.
