Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Romans 6:4


6:4 We are buried with him - Alluding to the ancient manner of baptizing by immersion. That as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory - Glorious power. Of the Father, so we also, by the same power, should rise again; and as he lives a new life in heaven, so we should walk in newness of life. This, says the apostle, our very baptism represents to us.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:4


Ro 6:4 We are buried with him by baptism into death. The argument is that a burial implies death. Baptism is a burial, therefore its subject has died. As Christ died through sin, we die to sin; as the Crucified Christ was buried, we who have died to sin through the gospel are buried with him. As death and burial separate from the natural life, so death to sin and burial into Christ should completely sever our relation to sin. That like as Christ was raised up from the dead. The glorious power of the Father lifted up Christ from the tomb. So we, too, rise from the watery burial, with death and burial between us and the old life of sin, in order to "walk in newness of life". Conybeare and Howson write: ``This passage cannot be understood unless it is borne in mind that the primitive baptism was by immersion.'' Dr. Philip Schaff says: ``That the custom of baptism by immersion is alluded to is generally admitted, but the emersion is as significant as the immersion.'' Godet states: ``It seems to us very probable that the apostle alludes to the external form of the baptismal rite in the primitive church.'' And John Wesley says: ``The apostle alludes to the ancient manner of baptizing by immersion.''

Discussion for Romans 6

  • Sheryl Joy Christos
    Romans ch 6 is an exhortation to keep The Commandments which are all embodied in The New Commandment of Love. Yeshua taught over and over about keeping The Commandments in order to follow The Lord our God. To pursue The Lord is to love and pursue Holiness proceeding from The cleansing and doing of The Word. Rom2:13 28, James 1:22-23

    Talking to a brother the other day believes all are sinners forever. Told him to read this chapter. VERY CLEAR. Sin is not to have dominion over believers! Period, but only in Christ.
