People's Bible Notes for Romans 6:3


Ro 6:3 So many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ, etc. The fact that every follower of Christ has died to sin is shown by his baptism. All its symbolism points to death. To be "baptized into Christ" means to enter into a vital union with him, so as to be found in him. See Ga 3:27. Were baptized into his death. But this baptism into Christ implies death, for it is a baptism into the death of Christ. That the subjects of baptism are partakers of his death is shown by the form of baptism. It is a burial.

    Hi Audrey, I agree that the blood of lambs and goats could not wash the sins of the Jews or our sins away, but the Blood of Christ does! FREE from sin! Now serve Him in righteousness, HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, not my tears. Holy to the LORD!

    Audrey; You may have been misinformed about forgiveness in the Law and the Prophets. See Leviticus 4:20,26,31; 5:10,13; 6:7; 19:22; Numbers 14:19;15:26. Adam and Eve were forgiven and released to live out the rest of their lives and propagate the whole human race because of the Word of God that Christ would come in the flesh and undo the works of the devil and the power of sin; so RECONCILING man.

    Hi Randy, The Old Covenant did not forgive sin nor could it. The Old covenant is a foreshadow of Christ. Everything is about Jesus. Jesus was the Passover lamb, Jesus was the final sacrifice. The blood of lambs and goats could not wash the sins of the Jews or our sins away. From the priests offering the lamb up as a sacrifice, foreshadows the Priests in the NT offering up Jesus to be sacrificed.
  • A disciple
    Emanuel; Let me try to explain it another way you might better understand. The tail isn't supposed to wag the dog! We live now in this tabernacle of a flesh body on earth, that's appointed already to die. WE are spirits housed in this body. Jesus has broken the bonds of our spirits' servitude to the flesh; and given us His Spirit to lead us in victory every day, if we abide in Him.
  • Randy
    Emanuel: Friend, please tell me then what Jesus did for us. The old covenant forgave sin, so what does the New Covenant do? As far as me and my family, we will never go back to thinking we are still yet sinners after what Jesus did for us! The KJV says "while we WERE yet sinners". The KJV says "Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin"! Holy
