People's Bible Notes for Romans 4:25


Ro 4:25 Who was delivered for our offences. "He died for us" (Ro 5:8 1Th 5:10); "was made sin for us" (2Co 5:21). He was to be "cut off, but not for himself" (Da 9:26). Raised again for our justification. The resurrection of Christ was his own justification against the condemnation of the world. In his justification, all for whom he died, who have laid hold on him by faith and are found in him, are justified with him, in that their sins are forgiven. Without the resurrection, the sepulcher of Christ would be the grave of all our hopes. This is beautifully symbolized in baptism. "We are buried by baptism into death" (Ro 6:4), his death, "planted in the likeness of his death" (Ro 6:5), figuratively die with him. We are also "planted in the likeness of his resurrection" (Ro 6:5). We rise with him, "new creatures" (2Co 5:17), justified by his resurrection.

Discussion for Romans 4

    Paul asserts that Abraham believed God and it was accounted as Faith. But Abraham was visited by Angels sent by God, clearly supernatural beings. Paul was visited by Jesus himself, supposedly. We are asked to believe based on the account of those who lived thousands of years ago. I will have faith and also carefully abide by the law. Acknowledgement of the law of God is equal to faith.

    Landon, water baptism does not save anyone. 1 Peter answers your statement. It's an answer of a good conscience toward God.

    Linda Wms. - You are right on; it can be taken further though - Jas. ch. 2; "But wilt thou know, O man, that faith without works is dead. After faith brings us to Acts 2:38 - Then the GOOD works begin, in our witnessing. Any 'works' before Acts 2:38 are dead because we haven't His spirit of truth in us. It is the spirit that quickens, that 'pricks' the heart of sin. Eph. 2:10; Heb. 10:24; Tit.3:14
  • Linda williams
    Romans was written to show works are dead in the pursuit of rightousness, but it is faith in God that brings us in a right standing with Him by His grace.

    AMEN, Landon!!! Go get 'em, Christian, and take Acts 2:38 with you .............
