People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:5


Ro 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death. As the seed, planted, buried out of sight, rises again in a new life, so we are planted in the likeness of Christ's death when we are buried in baptism, and rise [in the likeness] of [his] resurrection, when we are lifted out of the water, and are found henceforth to have a new life. Compare Col 2:12: "Buried by baptism, wherein ye are also 'risen' with him".

Discussion for Romans 6

    It doesn't have anything to do with the nails or cross. However it does symbolize death and resurrection. More importantly baptism is just that. Being baptized a key part in steps to return to live with God again. Christ was baptized not to wash away sins but to fulfill all righteousness as stated in Mathew 3:15. In Mark it talks about being baptized of water and the holy ghost both are needed.
  • Mary
    Baptism is our outward expression of our inward changed life. When we accept Christ as our Savior, we have a changed life. Our old life to sin is dead and we have a new life in Christ

    John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. Romans 3:27 Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. 3:28 Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. 3:31 Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law. 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter. 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: Hebrews 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
