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

    Anthony: The Bible says all HAVE sinned(past tense) and fallen from the Glory of God's Grace. So one cannot say they 'have no sin' without deceiving themselves. The Bible also says that we are to put to death the sin full nature by believing the TRUTH and studying the Scriptures diligently. Did not Jesus say He took away our sin? Isn't that the TRUTH? Repent means a reversal of opinion. Lord Bless

    Some scriptures concerning sin, 1 John 1:7 1 John 1:8 1 John 2:1 1 John 3:9 1 John 5:17 James 2:9 James 4:17 Ephesians 4: 26 1 Corinthians 15:34 Romans 7:18-25 Romans 8:10 Romans 14:23. Sin is mentioned in the KJV Bible 448 times. 336 times in the Old Testament - 112 times in the New Testament.
  • A disciple
    Anthony; who told you that you sin every day? Are you really still sinning? Didn't you repent? Aren't you a thoroughly converted Born From Above New Creature in Christ? The blood of Jesus was shed for us to be completely set free from the power of sin over us, as well as our reconciliation and forgiveness. There are reasons for repeatedly falling into sin. It is an unclean spirit and disobedience.
  • Emanuel Fernandes
    He who is of born of God does not sin." - This is true you need to understand FULLY WHAT IS MEANT BY THIS. The holy spirit in you will open your understanding. Your flesh is no longer attached to your soul. Your uncircumcised now which means the holy ghost HAS sealed you off from your flesh. You'r the soul t doesn' sin ONLY your flesh only difference your grieved by sin and you have CONVICTION!
  • Anthony Wright
    I just read the social media comments for Roman 6:14, and one sentence stated that, "He who is of born of God does not sin." But in 1John 1:8, if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. Can you explain this to me? Because, I am a confirmed believer. And, I sin everyday. Mindful and unmindful.
