What form of pattern was delivered?

MOORE — Greetings, to all Moore American readers. We hope that you’ve had a blessed week so far. Thank you for joining us today as we will continue the thought from last week’s lesson of “obeying from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered unto us” taken from Romans 6:17.

In this study of the Word of God, we are going to examine this verse and its meaning as found in the scriptures. The first question is what form (pattern) of doctrine was delivered unto them?

Let’s look at the above verse again and notice it is: a singular doctrine (teaching). In Paul’s letter to the Christians in Rome, he was delivering a teaching in which he received from Christ “And the Lord said unto me, Arise, and go into Damascus; and there it shall be told thee of all things which are appointed for thee to do” (Acts 22:10).

“The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth” (Acts 22:14).

“And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord” (Acts 22:16). “Calling on the name of the Lord” means to do it in Jesus’ name because He commanded it, “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:19). 

That form of doctrine is found in this letter to the Christians of Rome. So many as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death in order that, just as Christ was raised from among the dead by the Father's glorious power, we also should live an entirely new life (Romans 6:3-4) — that is, when they were baptized into Jesus Christ they were baptized into His death where we reach the blood of Jesus.
