B. Identification with Christ
1 What then shall we say? aShould we continue in sin that bgrace may abound?
2 Absolutely not! We who have adied to sin, how shall we still live in it?
3 Or are you ignorant that all of us who have been 1abaptized into 2Christ Jesus have been 1baptized into 3His death?
4 We have been 1aburied therefore with Him through 2baptism into His death, in order that just as Christ was braised from the dead through the 3cglory of the Father, so also we might 4walk in dnewness of elife.
5 For if we have 1grown together with Him in the 2likeness of His death, indeed we will also be 3in the 2likeness of His resurrection,
