Romans 6: 1-7

  • According to Romans 6:1-6, what significance does baptism have for the Christian?
  •  

  • Read Romans 6:1-4 again. If Christians have died to sin, why do they continue to sin?

1 John 1:1-12

  • According to 1 John 1:5-9, in what ways can we testify about God?

1 John 1:7 says

…there are three that testify: the Spirit, the water and the blood.

What does John mean by the testimony of

  • the Spirit?
  •  

  • the water?
  •  

    the blood?

Look also at John 19:31-37 ‘The Death of Jesus’

  • What connections can you find between this passage and 1 John 1:5-9
