7 Wherefore, dispute not because ye see not, for ye receive no witness until after the trial of your faith, for it was by faith that Christ shewed himself unto our fathers, after he had risen from the dead;
8 And he shewed not himself unto them, until after they had faith in him; wherefore, it must needs be that some had faith in him, for he shewed himself not unto the world.
9 But because of the faith of men, he has shewn himself unto the world, and glorified the name of the Father, and prepared a way that thereby others might be partakers of the heavenly gift, that they might hope for those things which they have not seen;
10 Wherefore ye may also have hope, and be partakers of the gift, if ye will but have faith.
11 Behold, it was by faith that they of old were called after the holy order of God; wherefore, by faith was the Law of Moses given.
12 But in the gift of his Son, hath God prepared a more excellent way, and it is by faith that it hath been fulfilled;
13 For if there be no faith among the children of men, God can do no miracle among them; wherefore he shewed not himself until after their faith.
14 Behold, it was the faith of Alma and Amulek that caused the prison to tumble to the earth.
15 Behold, it was the faith of Nephi and Lehi, that wrought the change upon the Lamanites, that they were baptized with fire and with the Holy Ghost.
16 Behold, it was the faith of Ammon and his brethren, which wrought so great a miracle among the Lamanites; yea, and even all they who wrought miracles, wrought them by faith, even those who were before Christ, and also them who were after.
17 And it was by faith that the three disciples obtained a promise that they should not taste of death; and they obtained not the promise until after their faith.
