“As it is written: ‘I have made you a father of many nations.’ He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.” Romans 4:17

Abraham knew he and Sarah were too old to have a baby, but he believed God could give life to his body, which was as good as dead and to Sarah’s womb which was also dead (verse 19). This wasn’t a virgin birth. God restored Abraham and Sarah’s bodies and brought life to a dead situation.
