BibleNew TestamentHebrews

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
For by it the elders obtained a good report.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

See Alan Eyre's Should Christadelphians reject the sciences, become biblical literalists, or teach ‘young earth creationism’? discussing the need for faith.

Cited in The First Conversation: Faith vs. Science, discussing faith and scientific knowledge.

''Ex nihilo'' creation is discussed by Roger Evans here, making the case that verse 3 should not be applied to the created physical universe.
