    SEV Biblia, Chapter 6:4

    Porque somos sepultados juntamente con l a muerte por el bautismo; para que como el Cristo resucit de los muertos a gloria del Padre, así tambin nosotros andemos en novedad de vida.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Romans 6:4

    Verse 4. We are buried with him by
    baptism into death] It is probable that the apostle here alludes to the mode of administering baptism by immersion, the whole body being put under the water, which seemed to say, the man is drowned, is dead; and, when he came up out of the water, he seemed to have a resurrection to life; the man is risen again; he is alive! He was, therefore, supposed to throw off his old Gentile state as he threw off his clothes, and to assume a new character, as the baptized generally put on new or fresh garments. I say it is probable that the apostle alludes to this mode of immersion; but it is not absolutely certain that he does so, as some do imagine; for, in the next verse, our being incorporated into Christ by baptism is also denoted by our being planted, or rather, grafted together in the likeness of his death; and Noah's ark floating upon the water, and sprinkled by the rain from heaven, is a figure corresponding to baptism, 1 Pet. iii. 20, 21; but neither of these gives us the same idea of the outward form as burying. We must be careful, therefore, not to lay too much stress on such circumstances. Drowning among the ancients was considered the most noble kind of death; some think that the apostle may allude to this. The grand point is, that this baptism represents our death to sin, and our obligation to walk in newness of life: without which, of what use can it or any other rite be? Raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father] From this we learn, that as it required the glory of the Father, that is, his glorious energy, to raise up from the grave tho dead body of Christ, so it requires the same glorious energy to quicken the dead soul of a sinner, and enable him to walk in newness of life.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. Therefore we are buried with him by
    baptism into death , etc..] The nature and end of baptism are here expressed; the nature of it, it is a burial; and when the apostle so calls it, he manifestly refers to the ancient and only way of administering this ordinance, by immersion; when a person is covered, and as it were buried in water, as a corpse is when laid the earth, and covered with it: and it is a burial with Christ; it is a representation of the burial of Christ, and of our burial with him as our head and representative, and that into death; meaning either the death of Christ as before, that is, so as to partake of the benefits of his death; or the death of sin, of which baptism is also a token; for believers, whilst under water, are as persons buried, and so dead; which signifies not only their being dead with Christ, and their communion with him in his death, but also their being dead to sin by the grace of Christ, and therefore ought not to live in it: for the apostle is still pursuing his argument, and is showing, from the nature, use, and end of baptism, that believers are dead to sin, and therefore cannot, and ought not, to live in it; as more fully appears from the end of baptism next mentioned; that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the father, even so we also should walk in newness of life ; for the end of baptism is not only to represent the death and burial, but also the resurrection of Christ from the dead, which is here said to be by the glory of the Father, some read the words, unto the glory of the Father; meaning either, that the Father might be glorified hereby; or that Christ, being raised from the dead, might enjoy glory with the Father, as he does in human nature; but rather the phrase expresses the means by which, and not the end to which, Christ was raised from the dead: and by the glory of the Father is meant, the glorious power of the Father, which was eminently displayed in raising Christ from the dead; and as baptism is designed to represent the resurrection of Christ, which is done by raising the person out of the water, so likewise to represent our resurrection from the death of sin, to a life of grace: whence it must be greatly incumbent on baptized believers, who are raised from the graves of sin by the power of Christ, to walk in newness of life; for since they are become new creatures, and have new hearts and new spirits given them, new principles of light, life, grace, and holiness implanted in them, and have entered into a new profession of religion, of which baptism is the badge and symbol, they ought to live a new life and conversation.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 3-10 -
    Baptism teaches the necessity of dying to sin, and being as it wer buried from all ungodly and unholy pursuits, and of rising to walk with God in newness of life. Unholy professors may have had the outward sig of a death unto sin, and a new birth unto righteousness, but they neve passed from the family of Satan to that of God. The corrupt nature called the old man, because derived from our first father Adam, is crucified with Christ, in every true believer, by the grace derive from the cross. It is weakened and in a dying state, though it ye struggles for life, and even for victory. But the whole body of sin whatever is not according to the holy law of God, must be done away, s that the believer may no more be the slave of sin, but live to God, an find happiness in his service.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    4. We are buried with (sunetafhmen). Rev., more accurately, were buried. Therefore, as a
    natural consequence of death. There is probably an allusion to the immersion of baptism. Compare Col. iii. 3.

    Into death. Through the baptism into death referred to in ver. 3. Both A.V. and Rev. omit the article, which is important for the avoidance of the error buried into death.

    Glory (doxhv). The glorious collective perfection of God See on iii. 23. Here the element of power is emphasized, which is closely related to the idea of divine glory. See Col. i. 11. All the perfections of God contribute to the resurrection of Christ - righteousness, mercy, wisdom, holiness.

    We might walk (peripathswmen). Lit., walk about, implying habitual conduct. See on John xi. 9; 1 John i. 6; 3 John 4; Luke xi. 44.

    In newness of life (en kainothti zwhv). A stronger expression than new life. It gives more prominence to the main idea, newness, than would be given by the adjective. Thus 1 Tim. vi. 17, uncertainty of riches; not uncertain riches, as A.V.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    6:4 {We were buried therefore with him by means of baptism unto death} (sunetaphmen oun autwi dia tou baptismatos eis ton thanaton). Second aorist passive indicative of sunqaptw, old verb to bury together with, in N.T. only here and #Col 2:12. With associative instrumental case (autwi) and "by means of baptism unto death" as in verse #3. {In newness of life} (en kainotti zwes). The picture in baptism points two ways, backwards to Christ's death and burial and to our death to Sin (verse #1), forwards to Christ's resurrection from the dead and to our new life pledged by the coming out of the watery grave to walk on the other side of the baptismal grave (F. B. Meyer). There is the further picture of our own resurrection from the grave. It is a tragedy that Paul's majestic picture here has been so blurred by controversy that some refuse to see it. It should be said also that a symbol is not the reality, but the picture of the reality.
