BibleNew Testament1 Peter

18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
20 Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you,
21 Who by him do believe in God, that raised him up from the dead, and gave him glory; that your faith and hope might be in God.

See Before the foundation of the world. The New Testament teaching that the Redeemer, by whose sacrifice we were redeemed (vv. 18-19), was anticipated "before the foundation of the world" has important implications for our understanding of Origins.
