Under The Law, it was Paul the proud Pharisee who lived. But are we therefore regardless of the interests of morality? "Who loved me, and gave himself for me." His life to God was no natural principle-no vital element self-originated or self-developed within him;-it sprang out of that previous death with His Lord in whom also he had risen again; nay, Christ had not only claimed him as His purchase and taken possession of him, but had also entered into him,-had not only kindled life within him, but was that Life Himself. I confess, that the right eye being plucked out, and the right hand cut off, does imply a considerable degree of pain and self-denial.

But if you get a view of a suffering Christ, or of a risen Christ; if you get a taste of his dying love, a drop of his atoning blood, or any manifestation of his beauty and blessedness, there comes from this spiritual baptism into his death or his life a subduing power; and this gives a victory over temptation and sin which nothing else can or will give. The believer then, according to this view of the subject, is dead, [Once all his hopes were founded on his obedience to the moral law; and lie felt in his conscience a dread of God’s wrath on account of his transgressions of its precepts. Footnotes. Paul had been many years in Christ ere he used this language of assurance. For the allusion here is not to the crucifixion of the old man as in Galatians 5:24 (Ambros., Grotius),-the image of spiritual change, self-denial, and “newness of life.” The apostle is describing how death to the law and release from legal bondage were brought about. 8:9, 10).

How odd is the notion of Vatablus, Propter fidem, i.e. “Went up by revelation”: This revelation from God was the voice of the Holy Spirit (see notes on Acts 13:2-4). Some connect the clause ἵνα θεῷ ζήσω with the one before it—“in order that I may live to God, I am crucified with Christ” (Chrysostom, Cajetan, Calvin). The ἐν σαρκί, in this body of flesh, is not carnaliter or κατὰ σάρκα; there is no ethical implication in the term; it merely describes the external character of his present life.

His reference to "the flesh" here is literal. Beloved, we entreat and charge you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, not to deceive yourselves with respect to this matter. (1) Christ's death is a great act of self-surrender, of which the … No longer Saul the Jew (Galatians 5:24; Colossians 3:11), but "another, man" (cf. ‘Now’ after my conversion, as compared with my old life.
