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".

    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
