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".
