 11 In whom you are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision performed by Christ.2 [Christ is the anointing, which teaches you all things and which circumcises your heart, cutting off the foreskin of sin and selfishness to become an inward Jew, inwardly circumcised.]

 12 Buried with him in baptism, in which also you are risen with him through faith of the operation of God, who has raised him from the dead.3

Romans 6:5

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 5 For if we have become united with him in the likeness of his death, we will certainly also be united in the likeness of his resurrection. [The Romans had died on the inward cross of self-denial, to be free of sin; but they had not yet experienced Christ to raised in them to become an entirely new creature, in union with God as a son born of God. See Note 2 below for the detail of the two-step perfection.]
