Romans 6:3-7 The Passion Translation (TPT)

Or have you forgotten that all of us who were immersed into union with Jesus, the Anointed One, were immersed into union with his death?

Sharing in his death by our baptism means that we were co-buried and entombed with him, so that when the Father’s glory raised Christ from the dead, we were also raised with him. We have been co-resurrected with him so that we could be empowered to walk in the freshness of new life. For since we are permanently grafted into him[a] to experience a death like his, then we are permanently grafted into him to experience a resurrection like his and the new life that it imparts.

Could it be any clearer[b] that our former identity[c] is now and forever deprived of its power? For we were co-crucified with him to dismantle the stronghold of sin within us,[d] so that we would not continue to live one moment longer submitted to sin’s power.[e]

Obviously, a dead person is incapable of sinning.


  1. Romans 6:5 Or “if we have become grown together as one with him.”
  2. Romans 6:6 Or “Coming to know this,” or “Coming to the realization.”
  3. Romans 6:6 The Aramaic can be translated “our old son of Adam.”
  4. Romans 6:6 Or “body of sin would no longer have dominion over us.”
  5. Romans 6:6 Or “that the body of sin might be annulled” (put out of business). To beg God for victory over sin is a refusal to understand that we have already died to sin. Our joyful task is to believe the good news, rather than to seek to “crucify ourselves.” Sin is not suppressed by the cross; it is eliminated. Upon this “water” God commands us to step out and walk upon it, for we are now in him.
