Continuity in Scripture

Jesus created all things, and we should praise Him for this!
This is shown in the first book of the Bible, in the Gospels, the last book of the Bible, and many, many places in-between!

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth... God saw all that He had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning--the sixth day. (Genesis 1:1 and 1:31)

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. (John 1:3)

Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne, and worship Him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say: "You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they were created and have their being." (Revelation 4:9-11)

Knowing from Genesis 1 that God was actively involved in the creation process (shaping a man from the earth, making him in His own image, etc.), and knowing from Revelation 4 that everything was created by Jesus' will, how is theistic evolution tenable?
