  4. Romans 6:3. Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
  5. Romans 6:4. Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: 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.
